Doing it Delhi Style!

First things first, our team has managed to elude "Delhi Belly"so far. Having avoided upset stomachs and poor health we are ready to hit the road. The last few days have not been uneventful due to my kayak being forgotten by United Airlines and left in San Francisco. A major "trade show" and "festivals" suddenly came to life as we arrived and caught us all by surprise. None of these activities actually took place we were just victims of some dodgy dealings and were caught out by sly taxi drivers. Their ability to spot the weakened traveler who has flown around the world with a kayak and sell an elaborate plan during the early hours of morning was quite impressive.

We all shared stories of the unusual fees we were asked to pay that night by rickshaw drivers and the not so lucky happenings. After three days my kayak is yet to arrive, Steve has been robbed and Ben had an oncoming rickshaw driver try to snatch his bag needless to say we are eagerly awaiting my kayak's arrival so we can head to the mountains!

Delhi is an overwhelming place. Its high paced chaos hits you in the face twenty four hours a day. Street beggars, constant harassment from from sales men and women, dogs, cows, bikes, flying scooters and rikshaws all josling for space. Everyone is in a hurry with the horn blazing.
In Delhi space doesn't exist.

A typical back street, not alot of room to move!

The best way to get around. Ben Jackson out and about in Delhi.

  1. Hey Zak,
    I'm killing the rest of my work day reading about your adventures - you're making my life look boring but it's better than reading biochemistry! good luck getting your boat, and getting out of delhi! I'll be looking forward to the unfolding adventure.
