Last Day in Delhi, Part 2

After not seeing the Red Fort, we made our way by auto-rickshaw to the nearby Jama Masjid, which just happens to be the largest mosque in India. Massive!

This last photo is looking down the steps of the mosque at a very busy street. All of India was crazy this day because it was the day before Diwali, a huge annual celebration also known as the Festival of Lights. It reminded me of Christmas with all the lights, candles, and gifts. It also reminded me of New Year's Eve with all the fireworks and partying. The streets were packed with people buying presents and fireworks--kinda cool.

So you finally took a rickshaw. :)

And how fun to get to see the Festival of Lights!
