Chandni Chowk

Chandni Chowk is a maze of markets and bazaars in Old Delhi. Alleyways barely an armspan wide are packs with small shops. Vendors sell food from stands, and sometimes just from cooking pots in corners. We rode through it on a rickshaw (a.k.a. pedi-cab). At least until a policeman or security officer (didn't get a good look at his uniform) made us stop telling us the lane we were following became one-way… the opposite way. But we didn't really stop to shop or anything. In retrospect, that's a good thing because the guide would have gotten a kickback everywhere. Next time I'm in Delhi, I want to wander the streets of Chandni Chowk without a guide.
