The hotel was nothing to shout about, the wifi didn't work, shower was cold, no AC and the fish dinner wasn't cooked well so I sent it back. Unashamedly first world problems.
Left about 7.30am, stopped at the Old Rai Hotel 58kms before Delhi, which is a large service station on the Mumbai-Delhi Expressway and treated myself to Angoori Rashmalai, Sweet lassi and once again a Masala Chai.
Stopped again at a small cafe called Cafe 81. I was needy for company. Just wanted to talk to anyone. Solo travelling was beginning to hurt. Traffic, noise, so much dirt, plastic waste, cows, more and more trucks and horns and sound and always on the edge.
That's it. The traffic has driven me mad! I'm in my hotel - £17 - outskirts of Delhi city centre, off again in the morning early. Off to bed. take care. Nick
