India, October-November 2010
Back in Delhi, where we had visited lots of poor or middle-class parts of town, we decided it was time to see a little bit how the other half (actually, more like 2%) lives.

We wanted to see how the more bourgeois inhabitants lived in Delhi, so we visited a shopping mall -- the Select Citywalk.
On its web site, Select Citywalk bills itself as the "Country's Most Admired Shopping Centre".

After the razzmatazz of the Select Citywalk, it was refreshing to wander among the flowers and deserted tombs of the Lodi Gardens. This one is the tomb of Bara Gumbad.
