WOOO HOOOO!!!

Dude, you are going to love India. Or you will hate it, but even if you do, you will love it too (it's that kind of place). I wish I could figure out how to spend more time there.

Hello to the whole CJ clan

You guys have fun

Mark,
Glad to see that you made it to India without incident. This new leg of your adventure should be very exciting and educational. We wish you the best in all that you do and hope that you will be safe and free from sickness or accident.

Dehli Day 3 May 17th, 2012

Was still a rest day as I get used to the time zone. Not working too well as I slept until 3PM, then up again all day until 3am.

It has been great just siting with CJ and his family. We did go out last night to see a few sites in Dehli central area.

Standing holding Cj's Daughter Sophia in front of Dehli Gate. Which is a war memorial for the Soldiers that had died in military service. It has a large eternal flame inside the large arch.



It was almost midnight as we walked around. Less crowds and slightly cooler temp (maybe 30 degrees C) Another archway.



Lots of families out, walking, eating and young people playing Cricket.



Lots of ice cream and other treats for all the people in the park.




We also Visited the Sikh Temple in Dehli. I really know very little about other religions, so good opportunity to learn about Sikhism.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sikhism



In order to be in in the Temple, we needed to remove our shoes, and wear a head covering (think Moto dew rag).









Then there was a large pool with catfish and gold fish, that people would be washing...





We are about to head out into the heat to look for motorcycles to Rent or Buy!! ... should be 40 degrees C today Yikes that is hot !

If you dig the Sikh temples and you are in the neigborhood, check out the one in Amritsar. It's Sikh home base. Uber cool and you can (and I think should) spend the night there. Man, there is SO much to do in India!

Hi there!

Im really jealous of being in India, going back again soon too...

I had a few friends having really good experiences with this guy.
They bought bikes and drove from India to Sweden a while ago.
Got very good help with parts/service etc...

Lalli Singh
Inder Motors
1740-A/55(basement) Hari Singh Nalwa Street,
Abdul Aziz Road,
Karol Bagh (New Delhi)

I my self was very happy with "Bonny Sony motors". They have shops
in Delhi, Manali and Goa...

For how long are you staying? Or is it an "as long as it feels good" kind of trip?
I have been there 3 times for a few months each time. Never enough...

/Jonas
