Sandeep’s visit to Delhi

Filed under: My Life — Suramya @ 5:23 PM

Sandeep was in town the past two days and I had a great time roaming the city with him. He flew in from Bhopal on the 12th, he was supposed to land at 10:30 pm but the flight got delayed by about 1/2 an hour so I waited by the car in front of the airport and Vinit went in to receive him. Once he came out (finally…) we drove home and got there at almost 12:15 am. After which he crashed and I stayed up for work.

The next day we slept till late and woke up at a little past 1:30pm. After lunch Surabhi and me left with him to meet another friend of his (Jyoti) in Green park. Once we picked her up we went to Dilli Haat and roamed around over there for a bit. Then we drove to India Gate and walked around over there for a little while till Vinit joined us. After which we drove to see the Rasthpati Bhawan (President’s place) and the Parliament. Took some nice pics. By then it was getting late so we dropped Jyoti off and went and had dinner in the Habitat center. The food was really good and resonabaly priced. After dinner we drove back home and I had to get back to work.

Today I did not want to get out of bed. I was that sleepy. Then I took a shower and we managed to leave the house by 11:30 am. We then drove to see the Akshardham temple which is quite near our house. Its a huge place and they have some amazing carving in there. Unfortunately they don’t allow camera’s on the premises so we didn’t get any photos. 🙁

So after seeing the temple (which didn’t take that long) we drove to Connaught Place (Now called Rajiv Chowk) and had our brunch at Narula’s where Ravi and Sonia also joined us. I was meeting Sonia after more than a year so it was fun catching up with her. Then since they had a prior appointment they had to head out after the lunch and the rest of us took the Delhi Metro to Karol Bagh.

The Metro is fantastic. Its a very well maintained system and it is very convenient. I can’t wait till the station near our house gets completed, then I can get to any part of delhi without driving. Right now I have to drive to Connaught Place (CP) or Pragati maidan and then take the metro from there.

In Karol Bagh we picked up Sandeep’s bus tickets to Ludhiana and then came back to CP to pick up the car. We then had some pastries at Wengers and a Milk shake at this shop right next to it. (can’t remember its name). As usual it tasted great. After feeding ourselves we drove down to Lal Quila in old Delhi and went in for the Light and Sound show. It was pretty boring so we left after about 15 mins into the show. Then we went to Haldiram’s for Dinner and then dropped off Sandeep at the bus stop to wait for his bus and then we drove back.

Now I am tired but can’t sleep. But my brain is not working because I am so tired so I guess I will do some light reading and then crash.

Well this is all for now. Will post more later.
