India Gate, in the heart of New Delhi is the national monument of India and by the observations of the AIG one of the most popular public spaces in the city. Wherever you look there were people, people, people. Families enjoying the outdoors and paddling boats in the canals. Children swimming in the pools and eating ice cream, all of India seemed to have sent a representative.
As is normal for India, along with the crowds came the hawkers selling everything from whistles to corn, water to sunglasses. The AIG got its first “up close” with a snake charmer who obviously saw us as a group who would appreciate a show and quickly threw a couple of sacks onto the ground in front of him. The rapid emergence of two rather large and possibly(probably?) grumpy cobras surprised and enthralled the team and reminded us, if we really needed it, that we weren’t in New Jersey this weekend.
