New Delhi, the capital of India, which I visited last December (2010). What a trip it was! The highlight was visiting The Taj Mahal, one of the wonders of the world. Here are just a few pictures from that trip. Tough choice, because I only have about four hundred or so from that trip. Sigh. The sheer scale of these monuments is breath-taking.

The Red Fort, Delhi. Sadly, couldn’t go in as it was closed on Mondays. Some bad planning on my part
The Rashtrapathi Bhavan, Delhi. The President’s residence. She gets a direct view of the India Gate below. Not allowed inside for obvious security reasons
The India Gate, Delhi. War Memorial. Looks fabulous lit up by night.
