Our first day, we arrived in Delhi, India at 3:30am, and were pleased to drive up to this beautiful hotel that we would call home for the next few days. The history behind it made it that much more special and not just another hotel. Maidens Hotel is one of Delhi's oldest hotels, and was built in the early 1900's during the Mughal reign.
One of the biggest culture shocks for us was the traffic. It's crazy! (to put it mildly) There are people on bikes, mopeds, motorbikes, packed into cars, tuk tuk's, you name it, they drive it! It's unbelievable to see what people will carry on their bikes.
We went out for dinner at a very well known restaurant called Bukhara. Apparently when high profile people come to town, this is the place they eat. The food was good, but I particularly enjoyed the giant naan bread!
The artwork in this hotel was over the top, and the main lobby area had a beautifully hand painted ceiling.
That's just a brief look at Day 1, I hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit, and I will be sure to share more with you when I get a chance.
