Delhi, India, November 2019
+ My feelings
Delhi or New Delhi, difficult to navigate. Delhi is a city in northern India and home to New Delhi, the capital of India. IF I understand, two cities in one. So am I in Delhi or New Delhi…
A very cosmopolitan city. My hotel is in Connaugh Circle, the central point of the subway. A huge place since its outer part has to do within 5km (3.1mi).
I was able to walk around Delhi (Old and New) more easily. I also took the subway card, valid for 3 days, not expensive and especially very practical. The metro remains the most convenient and secure means of transportation. A search is performed at each entrance and X-ray on the luggage.
There are many things to see but the distances are great. It is difficult to make several monuments in the same day, unless you are a walker like me.
I regret not being able to go to some places like “Old Iron Bridge”. On foot, it remains impracticable.
I advise you to take a walk, even if I admit it, you have to know how to close your heart to all the poverty reigning in this immense city.
Many gardens, streets, serve as rooms and playgrounds for children. It hurts my heart but I am only a drop of water.
I spoke with an Indian who asked me why there were so many poor people. Hard to argue for a European who does not have the same vision and the same spirit as an Indian. This poverty remains paradoxical compared to the immense progress of this rising nation. She almost managed to become the 4th state to probe the moon this summer. On one side, this power (military, spatial) and on the other this immense poverty.
