Delhi by Cycle – Raj Tour

At least the visible part of the smog isn’t as bad as before. So in order to breath some of the (fresh ?) air, I booked myself into another bicycle tour – this time not through Old Delhi, but into the new part, mostly laid out and built by the British (Raj Tour). That means wide lanes, tree-lined roads, the Presidential Palace and India Gate. As always in this city, the opposite of this magnificence is not far away. Behind the prestigous buildings hide slums and just next to the grand governmental building for food safety people life in shacks.
