Hi everyone,

I’m afraid it’s me again. Just switch off if I bore you lol.

We arrived safely in Delhi this morning. Unfortunately it’s a bit colder here today than at home however the forecast is for hotter weather during the coming days.

After lunch we decided to stretch our stiff airplane limbs and go for a walk to explore the local area. Well that didn’t happen. We were persuaded to take a very stressful tuktuk ride around the insanely busy Delhi streets. Actually it was really quite fun and had it been a fairground ride I think I would have been screaming most of the time. Tuktuks are surprisingly fast and can squeeze into the tiniest gaps ?thank goodness the drivers are skilful. At one point Pat insisted on driving as you will see in the photo ?. After seeing how many people can fit onto one of their underpowered mopeds we will not be hiring a car next time we visit James and Martine in the USA. His bike is much more powerful so should easily be able to take Amy ,Paul us two and the pair of them ha ha. It appears I will have to keep an eye on Pat as he seems to be attractive to India’s equivalent Of the ladyboys as we found out when we stopped at traffic lights. The open sided tuktuk make it easy for the beggars and ladyboys to get extremely close!

Tomorrow we will be going on a guided tour so hopefully will be just as much fun.

I’ll keep you all updated.......Jane
