History Modernised



This computer, installed in the Qutb Complex, gives a 15 minute of aerial tour of the monument and surrounding buildings, for a very reasonable fees. I found this very interesting and informative. Plus getting a complete guided tour and getting an aerial view from the minaret was more than one can get ordinarily since climbing the minaret has been banned by the government following incidents of stampede at the monument. I like this marriage of history and modernization.

Apologies for a cut and paste, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise. I’m not Santa, you know!

Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs and all your souffl├ęs rise accordingly.

I like the idea of not having to climb a minaret. Whoa. It would make me out of breath at a time when getting my breath is hard enough just sitting down. LOL

I did not know 'Priyanka' in the Sanskrit language was a bee sitting on a flower. You found mine and for that comment, thank you very much.
