From day 2 in Delhi...didn't realize I hadn't posted it

So here's where things stand. Today for about $18 I was able to hire a car to take me around to the major sites of Delhi. I'm not thrilled at the idea of this kind of tourism, but this is the big city. There is no way to walk to see two sites in one day. Plus, that heat is a killer. Anyway, I don't know what all I saw today, it was kind of a blur, but here's what I remember best: the Indira Gandhi memorial museum, the Mahatma Gandhi memorial museum, Lodi tombs and gardens, and Humayun's Tomb. And I just realized that those all are concerned with death. I guess from what I know about India and Hinduism, that fits. Isn't it Shiva the Destroyer who is one of the main deities?
