Leaving Incredible India
Hassan dropped us at the airport and Dad immediately switched to his airport mode as he had to pay extra for baggage and find somewhere to sit! We were back at the Radisson and this one was even more impressive than the one in Agra. The rooms had a clear wall between the shower and the room and the super comfortable beds are always a treat for us. The swimming pool wasn't open but the red hot, gender divided Jacuzzis worked perfectly. The food here was amazing and in such large quantities, so Dad was happy. M&D treated us to the evening buffet, a true taste sensation and the most opulent buffet outside of Vegas-Grandy would have enjoyed that for sure!
In the evening we had our last diminishing session playing in the bar/café. We were nearly half way through the game when one of the workers told us we could not play cards in public in India, it is against the law! We were very apologetic and concerned that we may have offended people; hopefully this was just a Delhi law as we had played every night in Agra! We snuck upstairs and played in the lobby area and said goodnight for the last time in India.
Next morning we had a buffet breakfast and James helped himself to a few 'to go' options! Our flights were within an hour of each other so we got the airport with plenty of time (Grandy would not have enjoyed that!) to spend our last few rupees well, unless you're Mum and you keep £100 worth on the sly. I know it is just because you want to come back to India! I got more henna and went to the business class lounge with Dad-ohh well fancy, but then took a load of drinks out -not so fancy! It was another emotional goodbye as this will be the longest stretch without seeing my parents and the next time will be in England, not as exciting as catching up with them again in NZ, Peru or India!
It was a fantastic two weeks with M&D and I am so pleased that they love India as much as me. We were truly spoilt in every way and we all have some more amazing memories to always share together.
