I'm heading to Delhi, India for a 3 week class with my Indian Econ prof at the Bush School. I've never been but I'm more anxious about this trip given Delhi's rep as a dirty city. I know ill learn a lot though and I always enjoy new adventures. Anyone been? Any S&R?
Afterwards, I'm joining my boss in A&M's Office of Tech Comm for a business trip to A&M Qatar and te Qatar Foundation. I've spent a lot of time in the ME but never in Doha. Anyone been? Any S&R?
Ill be streaming the CB. BTHO 0u!
Take a bunch of snacks and wear goggles in the shower.
I have never been but good luck bro!
The air quality is tough to get used to and it is normally worse this time of year due to farmers burning their fields and small fires throughout city as folks cook and stay warm. Watch your stuff closely. On second trip, wife left her ring and i left Aggie ring at home, draws wrong kind of attention. Expensive when staying at western type places. On our first trip, we stayed a few nights at a new Hilton (filtered air was a blessing) connected to a new 4 story large mall. It had Santa Claus with carolers at one end and a lengerie show at the other end. Crowded isn't descriptive enough. Saw a Bentley and many wealthy folks, yet poverty everywhere. You'll likely be surrounded be folks who speak English. Hang with your local friends who can be your guide/protector/interpreter/etc. Only bottled water. Have not complained about Houston traffic, air, or homelessness since. We are fortunate to be in this country.
Thanks. Arrived about 24 hours ago and explored the city today. Obviously, suffering from jet lag. First impression is that it's not as dirty as I expected... my expectations were more similar to Nairobi, Cairo and Tijuana, I think.
