Last Day in Delhi, Part 3

Next stop was over to the government buildings near Parliament and the Presidential Palace. They are set on a hill looking down the Raj Path towards the India Arch. (If you look closely at the last photo, you can see the arch far away in the smog.) We didn't see many tourists milling around; in fact, the only people I saw for a while were guards with their guns and rifles. We just kept walking up the hill and right past the buildings. We were waved away by a guard when we got close to the Ministry of Defense, so we just walked in the street instead of on the sidewalk next to the building. We did see some visitors when we got close to the Presidential Palace, but they seemed to be Indian. There certainly weren't any other Americans anywhere near!
