First day in Delhi

I decided to spend my first day in Delhi just wandering about. No maps, no targets, no asking for information: just walking around following people, my curiosity, and nothing else. Just to get the taste of this new city.

And while walking around, various thoughts were overlapping in my mind, and I was thinking at how these streets, these places that today are so unknown and alien to me, will soon become familiar and part of my daily life…

And while roaming, I ended up to the tombs of Humayun and Isa Khan, the second Mughal Emperor and a XVI century nobleman respectively. Humayun’s tomb (below), particularly, became the inspiration for the more famous Taj Mahal.

In short, as the CNN commercial would say: India, incredible India…
