too tired to leave our hotel room, 15 hours after landing in Delhi, everyone is asleep in the middle of the day. I'm fighting it off, but when I try to guess the time here I'm wrong, and guessing New York time is even worse. So I'm confused, and I'm hiding in the hotel because going outside is even more disorienting. We're staying in the Anoop Hotel in Paharganj, a "budget travellers' area" according to Jake's Lonely Planet Guide to Northern India. It is located between Old and New Delhi, on Main Bazar, which is a market. Our hotel room has 3 very comfortable beds, "hot" water, cable, and a super amazing Indian/Thai restraunt on the peaceful rooftop. It is Ru. 600 (rupees). At the going exchange rate of $1= Ru. 39.5, we're each paying $3.80. The best Indian paneer I've ever had was $2 on the roof last night.
