hmm

how far back do you want it to go

india was one of the original 4-5 civilizations, i think, along with china, mesopotamia and egypt, so it's really old

small world.
Yes, there are many nice hotels in India, the best IMO being the Oberoi in New Delhi, or the Imperial (ND also).
Leela palace in Mumbai used to be good, so did the Regent, not so much now.

3 Years! A lot has changed, especially in Delhi - Flyovers everywhere, you can get from South Extention to Dhuala Kuan on one flyover.
There is also a highway from Pancheel to Noida, which is pretty amazing for India, 4 lanes each way, speeds are high (for Indian standards) and people tend to stay in their lane.

yeah, I know that the change is going to be amazing. I lived in jordan about 10 years ago, and then went back after 6 or 8 years, and everything had changed drastically.

and I was in germany when the wall went down

I spent a lot of time in some african countries that don't exist anymore.

such is life.

Very interesting... Delhi also seems to be a lot cleaner than it used to be, and the property prices, I'm sure you have heard they are sky rocketing, thankfully I kept hold of my place in Westend, I'm thinking of selling it, because the price now is something like 60 times what I paid for it, but word on the street is prices are still going up.

cool - property prices seem to be unbelievable in india. even 5 years ago the prices were hard to believe, and now with all the growth.

I hope I get back soon, I really miss it, and I am dying to being my son, but it will be a while before he is old enough to come to india

I'm sure you knew what Mumbai was like 5 years ago in places like Nariman Point...
Now even Delhi is reaching the US$2000 per square foot, in places like Safdarjung, Golf Links, and Chankiyapuri.
Its certainly a place you should show your children.
