Namaste.. Namaste… Namaste...
I am now in Delhi, to be specific in Gurgaon where hubby is assigned to work. Gurgaon is one of Delhi’s four major satellite cities and claimed to be the best to work and live in India. It is about 30kms to New Delhi city.
The night I arrived at the airport, my first impression by looking at the airport – modern and big, it is not bad at all though I had been told about the other side of story about India. There are policemen everywhere. Along my journey to the hotel, I could see policeman stationed every 200mtrs along the road side. Hubby said it was like this since the day he arrived here and the security is even more strict due to the Commonwealth Games. I even have to scan my bags and walked thru the scan entrance to enter the hotel. It was not just the hotel but also the entrance of Malls, Metro stations or any other public area.
Today we visited Qutub Minar, the world’s tallest brick minaret. It was built under the orders of India’s first Muslim ruler Qutb-ub-din Aibak. We went there by taking Metro which claimed by the country to be WORLD-CLASS metro! Hmmm… 100x lagi perfect our LRT, Monorail or even komuter. All the stations looked like it were not fully completed.
