It has been 2 weeks since we moved into our temporary apartment in West Delhi. As the days went by we have become more comfortable with the place. I've learned to find my way around the neighbourhood, to the local shops, market and park and started to become a familiar site at those places to the locals. The apartment has begun to feel a little like home.
With that said we know it's only temporary. Though we've flirted with the idea of living somewhere around here, either in this neighbourhood or one beside Freddie's work we are now looking seriously at South Delhi. A more expensive but much greener and better connected to sites part of Delhi. We saw some places around Freddie's work straight after arriving and found it all rather crammed in. Last week we were taken to Dwarka where everything was high rise with dusty expanses in between the developments. It was pretty clear that this was not what we wanted. Towards the end of the week we were taken to some places in South Delhi. The area had a much greener appearance. We saw a place that we liked near Hauz Khas Metro station, which is in a very trendy and quite expensive part of town. The place didn't have much outside space but was quiet and near green spaces and we both liked it. Negotiations for it will begin.
