Dilli ki Sardi is making Skeety happy. To mark the beginning of the winter months, Skeety visited the Purana Qila. The Purana Qila is RED and splendid. It is vast too! It goes on and on and on. And on!
Skeety could only have a dekko in about the two plus hours she spent there. A longer visit is pending.
Here's a sneak peek :)

Another day, the Crazy Princess took Skeety on an AMBASSADOR ride! Delhi's very own vintage car. Skeety likes the fact that the Ambassador (first seen on roads in 1948) is still used by parliamentarians. The newest one is called Ambasaddor 'Grand' and has undergone many changes.But here's the battered one Skeety sat in (look at the AC closely), and believe me you, it was NEAT!

nice... but the way i know you there has to be a story with the pictures...

Taking pictures of forts etc was something that I could never really get into so would not comment on them :) they are good if you like them... the one with the sun is something that i really liked though :)

Amby was nice... i still want to believe that its the best driver wali gaadi available... i want to buy a white one myself.. have a driver with white uniform and roam around everywhere in it :)

dRoZzY: Yo! Ek dum...Drunk. High. Happy. Life. :)
~ ॐ ~:You are right :) The kahanikaar also felt that the kahani is missing. Maybe with a longer and better trip, I shall have a good story up as well.
Oh ji Thanks :)
I, as a matter of fact, love ruins. Heritage value or whatever. I love RED as well... so :)
and Amby...hmmm...I believe the same...besht driver wali gaddi :) Whites o'course are classics. Tell me when you own one :)
