    Apurba's 2 days trip to Old Delhi

    All bookings and details were fine until the vehicle by which we were travelling broke down. And the alternate vehicle which was provided for us did not meet our requirements (no. of people and luggage aspect) and we were asked to "adjust" as it was peak holiday season. Nevertheless, after endle
    ss discussions finally proper vehicle was arranged. But our timelines were spoiled, as a result we couldn't visit all the places that were in our list. More importantly the fun in the trip was spoiled because of such problems and since everything was prepaid we did not have much option.
