Delhi By Cycle

30 Nov 2012

I had an interesting morning today cycling around Old Delhi guided by Arkash of Delhi by Cycle tour.

Seeing a city by cycle was a great incentive by itself and was fun. But I ended up with a case of the Paris Shock Syndrome because of the state of filth of the city, even the grand Red Fort is nestled in a pile of garbage and we saw the city's poo and pee being dumped into the "holy Yamuna river."

The fun part for me was cycling through parantheywali gully which is impossible to imagine in the evenings.

Old Delhi is such a delightful place to roam.. I love the market, outside food and everything there.. I would call it : big things comes in small packages :)
