We arrived at our hotel in the early hours of the morning. By the time we were in bed it was almost 3am so needless to say, this morning was a late start for us!!

After a good breakfast, we vetured out into Delhi. First challenge...decipher the metro! Pass! We successfully got ourselves to Connaught Place (abeit on the most crowded uncomfortable tube journey we'd ever experienced)!

Apparently the architecture of Connaught Place is modelled on the Royal Crescent in Bath so of course it was a must see for us! Connaught Place itself is just a big collection of shops. But we did find our way into an underground bizarre which was...interesting! So loud! So busy! So many stores! And all the shopkeepers wanted us to go into theirs! I did succumb to buying a skirt...but for the equivalent of about £3 how could I resist??

After sampling the (delicious) local tea, Masala Chai, in a rather fancy restaurant, we headed back to the hotel for our meeting at 6pm with the rest of our group. And so the adventure begins...
