Postcards from Delhi

I’m trying something new around sharing travel photos — several of my lovely friends and family have asked if I would share pictures from the road, so here is a first attempt at a series of snapshots from our trip.

We are fortunate enough to be exploring India again. In the past I’ve done full blog posts about our experiences in India, with tons of photos and explanations, but let’s see how this “quick and dirty” approach goes!

On our first visit to Delhi in 2011, we did all the typical tourist stuff, so today we got a little bit more off the beaten path.


Breakfast in India is my absolute favourite meal in the universe.

But before I got stuck in to the Indian food, I had to see what all was available. I’ve been craving congee for weeks, but it’s hard to know if restaurant versions are vegetarian or not. In India, the problem is solved with a green dot indicating a vegetarian dish (and you know there’s no sneaky meat that way!) — so I had breakfast congee with scallions, peanuts, and chiles:

Then onto Indian breakfast (with idlis (steamed rice and lentil cakes), moong bean pancakes, veggie curry, vermicelli upma, bonda (rice and lentil fritters), and coconut & coriander chutneys):

Fresh fresh fruit, which finally tastes “right” in India:

With a perfect cup of gingery masala chai (“spice tea”):

Then off for a rickshaw ride through traffic in Old Delhi:

A visit to where Gandhi was assassinated, where one of his charkas (used to spin cotton) is on display:

And wrapping up the day with a visit to the peaceful Laxminarayan Hindu temple:

Sending love and sunshine to all,
