Indian roads


I hadn't been to Delhi for many years but there was no improvement in the pandemonium on the roads. One new feature was white lines to mark lanes but very few drivers seemed to find them useful. Indicators are not popular either and rear view mirrors are optional. One day a coach in which I was travelling stopped in the middle of a motorway and opened its doors: the driver had noticed a pal of his walking by the side of the road and was offering him a lift; no matter that the pedestrian had to run across two lanes of a busy motorway to get into the coach.

Well, that's probably better than in Romania - It would be two horsedrawn vehicles in the middle of the road on a corner....
Was it an additional honeymoon??

The perfect antidote to the rush and chaos of downtown Delhi - the new Aman Hotel. Beauty and the beast.
