Old Delhi

Delhi is a very diverse city. You have the modern parts close to Connaught Place, where all the government buildings are and then you have Old Delhi. The area around Chandni Chowk is quite well known to tourists who regularly drive through there on bicycle rikshaws or you see groups being led through the hustle and bustle by guides. But as you go in even deeper (Chowri Bazaar) it gets really chaotic and fascinating. I've only seen one Westerner there and when we saw each other we immediately started talking to each other, expressing our disbelieve of finding such a place right in the middle of this otherwise quite modern Indian Metropolis.
