AALP Class 14 International Study Tour - Sunday February 24, 2013 - Goodbai Mumbai!

AALP Class 14 was awake not quite as early this morning and was off to the Mumbai airport for a short flight to the nation’s capital Delhi. From the airport we boarded our bus and were off to see the major sights of New & Old Delhi. First up the oldest monument in India, Qutab Minar dating back to 1100 A.D., the largest tower (~73m) was erected by the many suggestive Islam rulers over the centuries from the stones of the Hindu temples they demolished. 

Many were then thankful for a quick taste of something from home, their choice of either McDonalds or Pizza Hut (with 100% pork pepperoni) for lunch.

We then ventured onward to tour "New" Delhi the central area where the British rule had settled many years ago seeing the most impressive estate there, being the 330 acre presidential estate. 

Switching gears we ventured toward to the largest mosque in India where 25000 Muslims can gather for the daily prayers. Starting at the base of the mosque on Chawri Bazar Road we began a class rickshaw race.  In pairs we flew past many venders selling everything from books to produce.

Our last stop of the day was at the co-op from Kashmere which gave a short demo on how the carpets are made.  The fully hand knotted rugs sparked the buying bug in many of the class members. We are also happy to announce one of the first items for the 2014 Dream Auction was purchased today! Watch out for tweets and pictures, of this fabulous creation!
