I started the day by waking up at 5am feeling like I had just slept for the whole day only to find my dad also awake. We both sat down and hung out trying to go to bed. Then I got bored an hour later and started watching some 6am NBA basketball. After that I was ready for an adventure. Today was all about learning about Delhi and the culture around it. First, we started by going to Jama Masjid, the largest Muslim mosque in Old Delhi. The courtyard was completed in 1656 AD, and it accommodates 25,000 people. We had a guide named Sweetie and she was very nice and knew many of the facts about the places we visited and the monuments around it. Although it was big I felt like it was a warm up for all the other places we would go. When we walked out of the courtyard we found skinny streets that where packed with people, cars, bikes and also food venders. You could turn one corner and get lost. There were lots of people preparing for Holi and also kids from school that where covered in colored paint from head to toe. We then got on a rickshaw which was a seating area connected to a motorcycle. I was sitting on the edge facing backwards so I would see people and bikes fly by my side only inches away but never touch me. After that we went to Humayun's tomb, a UNESCO world heritage site, commissioned by Humayun's wife and completed in 1571 (it set a precedent in Mughal architecture that was followed by the Taj Mahal). This place is super cool because it is the idea behind the Taj Mahal. After we drove over to a hotel called the Taj Majal hotel. I decided to branch out with my food and get some palak patta chaat which is a crunchy spinach ball and also some bamboo chicken, it tasted really good and it was mostly green. Next, we went to a place where they make really intricate rugs and they showed us how they make them and the detail of the rugs. I found this place really interesting. The rugs are pieces that take a whole family to make and almost a year to achieve. Instead of using weaving they put one string on the like then cut it. Every color is an individual piece of string. The coolest thing is that when they showed us some of the rugs they would shine in the light. But the main thing that blew my mind is that from different angles the rug would appear to change colors. It made me realize how hard they work for one rug and how much time a family puts into that rug business. Next we went to another temple, it was kind of weird when we had to cover our heads and take our shoes and socks off to go to a place where there were hundreds of other people. In the temple, there is a food service where they feed people and we got to help out with making the food. We went in the kitchen and rolled out bread to about the size of a tortilla. I had a lot of fun helping but I also really had to pee. We left to go to the bathroom and then new headed home. I was exhausted and then a change of plans or at least in my mind. We stopped by the Lodhi garden which ended up being really cool. We saw some people playing cricket which I had never seen in real life. But it was super cool to see tombs that where 600 years old and around it were amazing flowers. The garden almost looked like a painting with all the colors. After that we headed home and I took a nice nap. Then we met up with my Mom's friend Karma and met his wife and son. We went to dinner and the food was really good but I could barely stay awake because of the 12 hour time change. They ended up coming back to our hotel room for a bit and it was a lot of fun.
