India
Our final day in India began with in room dining. Technically, it is an Ocean View, or at least a Sea View... of the Arabian Sea. Although a pretty ugly one...
Getaway Day started with another delicious in-room breakfast. We checked out around 10am and departed with our guide Vijay and driver.
After breakfast, we met and our excellent guide Vijay and headed out on a gloriously sunny morning.   Driving by the iconic Hawa Mahal...  ... to the Jantar Mantar, an astronomical observatory built in 1827 by Raja Sawai Jai Singh II.
Fortunately, day 2 was much better as we stayed cleared of any Old Delhi masses.   The view from our window, alternating between "Smoke" or "Fog" on my weather app. First stop: breakfast from the buffet. 
OK, what was I thinking bringing Mrs. SFO to Delhi?  And then I compounded it by adding Old Delhi.   Quel idiot!   The good news is that Punam, our guide from three years ago, was in the lobby to greet us at 1pm.   And with our driver Mohan, we headed out to Old Delhi and Jama Masjid, India's largest mosque.  Wow, talk about sensory overload.
