New Delhi, New Friends

11 hours of sleep
and I feel zero jet lag.

I'm staying in the sweetest Air BnB that Ray found online for me and other than the location, I love it here.

It's immaculate and the hosts are extremely accommodating and have made me feel right at home.
I'm so lucky I stayed here as there is a fabulous little 3 table restaurant right out my door and down the stairs and it's all inside, so I never have to leave my building. 
My hosts live up at the top of the marble staircase and they are such a cute couple.

It's quite an unusual story in regards to their relationship actually..

Geeta and Vivek are their names and they are 20 something and she is a tall, slender gorgeous Indian woman with a cute short haircut and he reminds me of the actor Dev Patel who played in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel..
speaking of which...their relationship is quite a lot like the couple in that movie!
Let me explain...

Geeta lives upstairs with Vivek and she told me that they have been in their relationship now for 3 years and her parents as well as his parents know of this and are fine with it..
they have just decided they will marry in one year.

Viveks parents have the restaurant downstairs and she helps out there with Vivek and she also makes Chai for me 

she comes to chat with me in my room and she told me that she loves to go to Rishikesh when she can as she loves the yoga there and she would love to go there with me one day.
She does her worship of Lord Krishna and she enjoys it very much~

It's so nice when you find a like minded soul like this all the way across the world and you just happen to connect in such a beautiful way with similar interests.

They have both helped me so much since I have been here to make sure I have everything I need..even to the extent of topping up my phone with minutes, bringing me bottles of water and booking my Uber to the airport when I leave for Leh on Saturday.

Upon my return to New Delhi on my way home, I have one more night here with them and I'm so glad I do, theres no place I'd rather stay to finish up my trip back here in India.
