Last Day in India

I’ve been in Delhi again the past few days. It’s over 40 degrees celcius; not sure what that translates to in Fahrenheit other than *hot as balls*. But I haven’t minded so much. Two weeks ago I was more than ready to go home, but now I find myself wondering what it would be like to live in Delhi. Having a place of one’s own and friends and a job to go to make a place seem quite different.
I’ve been finding out that there are a lot of places in Delhi to escape the heat and crowds — mostly walled gardens (the root of the word ‘paradise’ means walled garden) with old stone tombs. The tombs are built of thick sandstone with extremely high ceilings and cross-ventilation through shading stone screens, so they’re the best place to sit and read.
I have loads of notes in my diary about the last few days and weeks, but I find I don’t want to waste my last few days inside writing, so they can wait until I have more time on my hands.
