At 5:45 PM that day, our flight touched down at the national capital of India — Delhi. Compared to our Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport back home, IGI in Delhi was huge! My jaws dropped as I soaked in the beautiful ambiance of the airport and its various facilities.
By this time, our travel agent was waiting outside in the parking zone!
In no time, we were out on the roads of Delhi. But only 30 minutes later, I experienced a massive traffic jam that lasted for an hour. I realized how the scale of things in Delhi was huge. Starting from the size of the city to its traffic issues.
Finally, when we reached the guest house, I realized that the airport runway was fully visible from the balcony. My friend Akash and Arjun who were studying in Delhi at that point came to meet me at the guest house. We relaxed, chatted after a long time, and had pizza and soft drinks.
My relatives went out to experience Delhi. A long, tiring, but a very satisfying day came to an end. Stay tuned to read the experience of the next 10 days in my upcoming blogs.
