Old Delhi, India is hard to put into words; the smells, the noises, the constant chaos and the sights are on a different level to all of the other countries I have explored. These pictures sum up my experience of walking through Old Delhi, India...

I took this photo around 7:30am when the street vendors were setting up for the day ahead after grabbing a quick bite to eat and a cup of warm chai.

If those pictures haven't intrigued you enough to visit Old Delhi in India, I don't know what will. Old Delhi is intense and was definitely a culture shock but I have so many memorable experiences from my time in India and I would highly recommend spending at least a few days in Delhi.
