Miscellany

Hello! I, alas, have not been posting everyday, but I have been taking pictures. This post will include various exciting and thrilling pictures from Delhi, in no particular order.

drum roll please....

Anoushka- the dirty dorm dog (stray) has taken a liking to me, much to Vivek's dismay (I named her, of course). She likes a good tummy rub, but I try to avoid the touching part... foot-tummy-rubs are loved as well.
Additional cuteness. Anybody want to adopt a young, cute, friendly dog? She is already spayed! :P
My sister could not believe that milk comes in plastic bags. So I got some photographic evidence, for her viewing pleasure.
I was shocked (and thrilled!) to discover that there is now offically a Cinnabon in Saket City Walk Mall in South Delhi. I know now that my mom can survive in India! :P I enjoyed a tastey cinnabon, and they do indeed taste just the same. Yum yum.
I enjoy talking pictures of subway signs from around the world. Here are some lovelies from the Delhi metro, which we have used a lot lately. It can be a bit crowded but is very nice. Many more lines are open then when I was last here.
We were able to go to the Delhi Book fair. Many different publishers and book sellers from around Delhi were there selling their wares.. I was able to get some fun books for myself and found a few Urdu storybooks for some of my kids.
दिल्ली पुस्तक मेला - Self explanatory... :P

Today I kheenched this picture of one of the many political posters adorning the J.N.U. campus.

Lastly, here is a video of Delhi traffic.. I thought it would be fun for those who have not been to India to get an idea of what it is like.

That's all for now--- more to come!

Love the puppy. She has beautiful markings. It's agonizing not to be able to properly pet them, isn't it? The first time I encountered milk in plastic bags, I was staying at my MIL's house and I was the only one up. I usually don't answer the door when I'm there, but I looked outside and saw a kid standing there. I opened the door and he handed me a cold bag of liquid. I just stared at the thing until he said, "Dudh, madam." I asked how much I owed him, and he tried to explain. Eventually, we worked out that I needed to give him a coupon. This meant finding the coupon. This was all done in sub-par Hindi and I'm sure he thought I was an imbecile. I found the coupons on top of the fridge and sent him on his way, but it was all very awkward.

Lovely puppy indeed! <3
But it's awful that Cinnabon (like many other American chains) should be in India... or anywhere in the world... chemical buns!
