exploring the beautiful country of india
On arrival at Delhi we were met by Bridge (the local ground agent) who escorted us to our car and accompanied us to the first stop of our trip - The Holiday Inn, New Delhi International Airport. On the way he chatted away to us and talked us through our itinerary. When we arrived at the hotel, he checked us in and tried to get the hotel staff to arrange something for our breakfast, even though we were going to be checking out at 4AM and we said it was ok and that we didn't need breakfast. We relaxed in the hotel for the rest of the day to help recover from the 7 1/2 hours of turbulence we had during our flight and had a very early night.
The following morning, a representative met us at the Holiday Inn to accompany us back to the airport and help us check in for our 1hr 45min flight to Bhopal.
On arrival at Bhopal we were met by another representative who introduced us to our driver and explained a bit about Bhopal as we drove through it. He then left us with our driver for the rest of the journey to Denwa Backwater Escape. The car was very comfortable and had a selection of snacks for us to eat had we gotten hungry on the way. It also had huge bottles of water.
The driver made us feel very safe, even though it appears that there may not be much of a highway code for the roads in India!
He also pointed out various things along the way.
