Sunday – Delhi to Hyderabad

Standard

Another early morning and a visit to Qutb Minar – part of a big historical site in south Delhi. Loads of amazing carvings, and huge Minaret  supposedly the tallest brick minaret in the world. The site was the place where Muslim first started rule in India.

Then off to the airport!

A couple of hours in an airport terminal with coffee and air-con can be quite reviving. We flew down to Hyderabad and rang a hotel from the arrivals hall whilst waiting for our bags. Another pushy tuk-tuk driver came up against Emma’s steely responses and took us straight to the hotel.

Hotel Harsha is cheap and basic but fine for one night in a big city – plus it has a reasonably nice and very cheap restaurant attached – dinner for two? About a fiver 🙂

We rested a bit and then went to see Charminar – some sort of important old tower in Hyderabad – and wandered around the surrounding market streets for a while until it got dark, fending off beggars, bangle sellers and a multitude of other offers, until Emma decided it would be nice to own some pearls. One necklace and a pair of earrings later we returned to the hotel…
