TRAVEL: New Delhi

Humayun’s Tomb, restored by the 
Aga Khan Trust for Culture.

The ONLY hotel to stay in New Delhi – The Lodhi predominates – luxury, civility prevails, each room has a swimming pool. 

Food – delicious!

Run by the charming New Zealander ex-diplomat Robyn Bickford who previously ran the delectable Amanbagh (see my entry 25/01/2013)

The Lodhi makes other Delhi Hotels look ‘old hat’!

A shopaholic's dream in New Delhi !
Two sources, new to me for 2015.

For Lucknow embroidered Kurtas Lal Behari Tandon - Classic white, some with all over embroidery, smart wear in the Med or the Caribbean or as nightshirts.

Shawls and scarves from Kashmir – a handicraft industry that needs ever-more support making beautiful cashmere (pashmina) shawls in wonderful designs from Kashmir Loom Company - & best is at 21 Basement, Nizamuddin, Delhi 110013
