Get me the hell out of Delhi

all seasons in one day 31 °C

So today I need to leave Delhi and fast. It is a city that can swollow you up. It's expensive and the people treat you like your a pile of cash. I ended up hiring a car and going off to Jaipur, Agra then down to Goa. I wish that I had gone to Jaipur of my way back up and out of Delhi. There was so many thing to buy!! and factory's of different sorts.
who ever thought I was undemestic (like myself) can think again!! I have succesfully washed my clothes in a sink, and a bucket and then made a makeshift hanging line to dry them. Thank you floss for not letting me down.

I went to some factories and was show how to make a few things, then went to the city palace, which was my faviorate of the day. It was beautiful and had so much detail, it was also quite and peaceful

OMG!!!!!!!! First off your pictures are gorgeous, it's the first time I might have wanted to join you for a day. But mostly so I could kick drunk-y in the face for you. Can you imagine it? I'd stand up take one step back and karate kick him in the mouth. Dirty bugger (That's what one of my residents would have called him. She calls everyone that.) So glad you got to see those things and it's so cool you just hire a car to take you around. Are there a lot of street kids?

Didnt you learn anything from watching Sex in the City 2 with me over and over?! You are not to have the forbidden experience! Oh ya that was about knock off watches, but it applies to Indian sausage too!!

The palaces are so interesting i would love to be there with you to explore them! The animals just roaming around and through the people is great. It looks like balance and cohesion with nature instead of trying to master and rule it like were mistakenly think we can.

Nice job with the floss. We need to send it to the floss company!

Just a few tips: A well place kick to the knee will dislocate and cripple some jerk.
A knee or foot in the ribs will break bones- the less stable and easily broken ribs are on the side and at the bottom of the rib cage-this punctures lungs.
The heel of your hand under a jaw bone buys time to take the next shot.
And of course kick him in the balls.
Im just sayin:)
