Gurdwara & Connought Place - October 30th, 2001
Yesterday was pretty hectic, it felt like we walked for miles
and it also feels like I have been here for weeks and I have only
been here 2 days!! Very weird.
Anyway, about yesterday. In the afternoon we went to Connought
Place, because we wanted to see this Sikh temple (gurdawara) nearby,
that was supposed to be worth visiting. However we could not find
it for a long time. In the end we met some Sikh men and they were
actually on there way to the temple so they let us come along,
they even got us in through some kind of back entrance.
I didn't really know much about Sikhism beforehand, but from
what I learned there it sounds like an interesting religion/philosophy.
They believe that all religions worship the same God and seemed
to believe in human equality, despite of race or religion. Well
I don't remember exactly, but I got the impression that this was
Even the traffic light tells you to relax - this is India !
We were really hungry after all this walking business, so after
visiting the gurdawara we went to this really 'dingy' hole in
the wall cafe. Although it looked like you would die from dysentery
just from sitting down there, we sat down anyway. The food was
actually good and we didn't get sick....so far :)
Actually I would like to get out of Delhi soon, because it is
a very hectic, crowded and polluted city. However since my Visa
card was stolen in London, I have to either wait here for a new
visa card to arrive or travel and then return to Delhi in about
a weeks time to pick it up. I have called the Norwegian Embassy
and asked if they got any post for me, they told me it should
arrive in a few days, so I have decided to wait a bit more. Oh,
time is running out and I don't want to spend all my time stuck
in an Internet place.
