Today we attempted to board a ‘Hop-On-Hop-Off’ or HOHO bus but when that didn’t go as planned we decided to do a self-led tour and ended up at Humayun’s Tomb. This historical site dates back to the 1500’s and contains a couple tombs including Humayun’s Tomb which was built to commemorate the short life of the 2nd Mughal Emperor. The combined use of red sandstone and white marble was the first of its kind and was the inspiration for the architecture of the Taj Mahal. After spending some time milling around the gardens, we ventured out to find the quaint Cafe Turtle for a much-needed lunch break. Even though we only saw one site we were exhausted so after lunch we headed home where Bryan rested his head for nap time and Adam and I got ready for a dinner hosted by Dr. Nayeem, his wife, and baby girl at a local Indian restaurant – the food was delicious!!!
Tomorrow we hope to make our way to Old Delhi where we can get a ‘real’ dose of Delhi culture!
