We stayed at a lovely hotel on the outskirts of Delhi. We stopped by India Gate and also got a special tour of the Indian Parliament and Rashrapati Bhavan, the Presidential house. A member of our group got a nosebleed on a very hot summer day and was tended to by the doctor to the President! It is the largest residence of any Chief of the State in the world and we were told they employ over 100,00 people. It was built in in 19 years, covers 4.5 acres of land and has 340 rooms, 37 salons, 74 lobbies, 18 staircases and 37 fountains.
