Sak Pase From Delhi, India
Sorry I've been quiet for a week. I was preparing for the journey that brought me here to Delhi, India. I arrived yesterday and am still settling in.
This morning I sent relatives an email reflecting on the ways in which Delhi ressembles Port-au-Prince and the ways in which it is different. Like Port-au-Prince, Delhi is still the capital to a mostly rural country. That is I think what makes parts of Delhi so reminiscent of parts of Port-au-Prince. The posh parts especially are remarkably similar: huge houses, tree-lined streets and gardens, often interspersed with much more modest residences. At least that is what I am seeing in GK, South Delhi. I will be doing my best to update you on my thoughts while here.
