To be honest, I wasn't excited about Delhi. More specifically say I am not sure what I thought about India. So this whole time I was trying to figure it out whether I like being here or not. And yet not clear about it. It wasn't in my mind at all about living in India and all of a sudden the card popped up. I was scared a little bit at first and curious a bit more.
That led me to stay in the hotel for nearly a week (shamelessly say) since I got here. I decided I should start to see real Delhi as baby steps. So Nehru Park was the perfect place to visit (you know I said baby steps). People might say why Park but I would say that's the way I want to start with. Everyday the traffic outside is enough to make me panic. I don't wanna look at this city with my own standard. But the city seemed so chaotic. Delhi wasn't built by a day and it must have its own personality and charm. So I'm the one need to be fit in. I can't be left behind in front of the whole new city.
The sun was helped my "baby steps" at the Nehru Park walk. Sky was blue, trees were green and my steps were light. It was ten in the morning. The crowd in the park was also pleasant. Many birds, squirrels and flower everywhere. There is no real India in here. India in my mind besides Tandoori chicken is dynamics of people and its vibrant colors. But today is my baby steps.
I didn't realized that I was sweating so much. I was so in to take photos of Canna flowers. I needed a nice cup of iced coffee. So I went to Cafe coffee day instead of Starbucks. It's an Indian coffee chain. If I want to try a real India drink, I suppose to try some cold drinks that made from a middle aged man on a street vendor. But baby steps.
Today's temperature 33'C. I'm still figuring that I like the city or not. One thing sure though is I'm one step closer to like it.
