10-11 March, 2005

Last night we arrived in Delhi. The first thing to hit me, even before we left the airport, was the smell: damp earth, smoke, curry, and a complex alchemy of scents that my nose could not comprehend.

Today we did some shopping and got oriented in our neighborhood of the city. We also visited CKS and talked with people there about the conference and our research. In the afternoon we had coffee at a trendy bakery where Indian teens dressed in western clothing were hanging out listening to Britney Spears. For dinner we went to a restaurant where the other guests were dressed in much more traditional Sikh or Hindi costumes.

Tomorrow we are looking forward to visiting Old Delhi, and exploring the street food vending network there.
