January 2009

Happy New Year!

Going stircrazy, Rahil loped over to Dilli Haat, a local crafts market, on New Year's Day. The place was awash in puppies. Rahil was in heaven. Then, on successive days, to the Railway Museum, the Children's Park near India Gate, and the National Museum.

Although school started on January 7th (thank god), it didn't deter Rahil's adventures. There was a trip to New Delhi's Crafts Museum (see separate gallery below). Then Rahil celebrated the last weekend of the Bush presidency by traveling to the Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary in Bharatpur and to nearby Fatehpur Sikri, the astonishingly well-preserved 16th century Moghul capital. (There's a separate gallery for that below, too.) Then another trip to Humayan's Tomb.
Daddy, I'm  not leaving.  You can go home, okay?
