Delhi August 2011

In August  2011 I visited Delhi, India, again this time for nearly three weeks

I stopped in two hotels. Firstly the unfinished Crowne Plaza at Rohini, to the north of the city but  it took a long time to reach anywhere due to the permanent heavy traffic - so I moved to another nice 5* hotel in Delhi this time in the centre near Connaught Place but unfortunately had to work nights again for most of the time and managed even less sightseeing than before due to the high temperatures 35C day and night

Here is a pictorial record of the trip

The view from the room was uninspiring and the swimming pool was closed
