Where's the Seat Belt???
We took a bicycle rickshaw through Old Dehli. Most of the stores were not open because the Ex-President of Pakistan was visiting but there was a lot of activity and remember we had cars, motorcycles and LOTS of horns. If I had to do it over again I would sit on the other side. I sat on the right and since they drive on the left and the manholes were in the middle of the street, I hit them all - but never fell out. It was a memorable experience. Great!!! Love it!! Then the took the new subway (Metro). Very impressive - just like London, DC, etc. They are expanding it and soon it will reach all of Dehli and suburbs. Oh yes, we got "sprinkled" on the rickshaw ride. They said it was "holy water" because they are having Holy Days now but who knows. It didn't smell :-) and others were "sprinkled as well but it was a bit of a shock!
