Delhi and MobiCom

I’m just back from a quick trip to Delhi – less than four days on the ground, and less than six days away from home – to attend the MobiCom conference.   The conference was great – interesting talks, colleagues, and friends – but I did take some time to get out and explore the city.  I’ve been there before – most recently last November – and had already seen all the major sites.  This time, I was most interested in just walking the streets and seeing what I might encounter.

On Wednesday, I strolled down to India Gate and encountered the crowds gathered for a VIP dignatory function related to Unity Day; most interesting were the police in dress uniform, and the (all-women) SWAT team. On Friday I visited the Red Fort in Old Delhi and an old step-well in New Delhi.  (The step-well was a new site for me.  Interesting!)

Check out all the photos.
