I wish... We are awaiting room service and an order of tandoori chicken and naan. Nitin ordered apple pie a la mode to appease my longing for Thanksgiving. But room service just called and said it is unavailable tonight. Still no flat found so I don't feel as thankful as I could. It's not that we can't afford some of the things we're seeing but it's more the idea that we are being taken for a ride. I often hate that part of being a foreigner, even in a land where people look like you -- you'll get in a car with a driver, spend a lovely eight hours together and then at payment time, somehow the distance between Connaught Place and Purana Delhi has become 100 km.
