After a late breakfast and picking up some washing we decided to venture out again into New Delhi this time about twice the distance of yesterday (3 - 4 km) to the India Gate which was built to commemorate those killed fighting for the British in World War I. Again as was seen yesterday we met some really helpful people who went out of their way to give directions. It took us about an hour to get to the road which surrounded the India Gate. Much like the Arc de Triomphethe archway is set at the end of the "Rajpath" in the centre of a roundabout. Now if you ever though the Champs-Élysées was busy, this was another level. Six lanes of traffic, sometimes eight abreast, doing anything between 10 and 40 mph, the Indians even struggled to cross. With our life in our hands and many failed attempts five minutes later with horns blaring as us we crossed, we weren't doing that again.
The India gate was impressive and it was nice to have made our own way there. We were now hot hungry and needed to sit down, so as Tom had promised Rachael we wouldn't risk crossing that road again we needed to find a Rickshaw to get us off the island. As it always seems those drivers will annoy you forever when you don't want one but when you do, nowhere to be seen! Spotting one pulling in to drop someone off we jumped in and headed back to the guest house.
