Trip to Jodhpur, India-Jan-Feb-2012-Time to Go Home
Sadly, it was finally time to take the overnight train to New Delhi and head for home. I love traveling on the Indian Trains. By the time I am part way through my trip I usually have heavy suitcases and at the train stations there are porters (for a hefty fee) who will tote them around, find your train and compartment and get you settled in. Women over 60 get 40% off their ticket. One of my porters is watching my bags and waiting for the train to open.
Arriving in New Delhi I had chosen a new hotel (for me) on Connaught Place, the main shopping area in New Delhi. I usually stay in the cheaper backpacker section North of here and this was a real treat. The hotel was on the second floor and was absolutely wonderful. Hotel Palace Heights. Very comfortable room, excellent breakfast included, and really helpful warm and cordial staff. I will stay here again for sure.
