So today we did our sight seeing thing. But unfortunately its a religious public holiday so two places we wanted to visit was closed.

We started out at the Qutab Minar. This is an old tower and grave site. The tower itself is magnificent. It was a fort too

After that we headed over the the Lotus temple. This is a beautiful modern structure which is the the imiddle of New Delhi. What surprised me the most of this structure is that there are so many people flocking in there. Of all religions. And they all respect the people there. Their church is acceptant of others too. Its actually one of the things that make me the happiest about India. Everyone is acceptant of others beliefs. I wish this could be the case in SA aswell.

After this we had hoped to get to the Gandi Sirti, which is the Ghandi meuseem, and the place he was assasinated. This was unfortuanltely closed. We then tried the Planetarium, but this was closed aswell.

So Anna and I went home to have a shower and enjoy a bit of comfort before we head out to Udaipur tonight. This is an overnight train and it is our first of this kind, so I think it might be a bit of an experience!
