It has been five years since our last trip to India. We booked our flights back in December when we were in Antigua, arranging it so that we would have four weeks back in the UK. Those four weeks were pretty crazy – I had to get a new passport, we needed to go through the oh-so-painful process of obtaining Indian visa’s and we caught up with family and friends, as well as fitting in a couple of housesits!
We arrived in Delhi at 4.30 am and our driver was waiting for us. This was great news, as it meant we wouldn’t have to deal with the con-men and tricksters!
Having made it through the airport, we still managed to get scammed on our first day in Delhi! Despite it being our fifth time in India, we were caught out by a charming con artist, a tuk-tuk driver and an ‘unofficial ticket office’, all working in coercion! Stupid! Luckily, we only lost twenty rupees and had to walk a kilometre back to the train station, where we were headed in the first place. It could have been worse. Scammers are lurking around every corner in Delhi!
