Living in Delhi is cheap compared to most international cities.Generally in India
everything is very cheap. A meal in a local eatery costs less than 50p (honestly!)
and there are plenty of superb fresh fruit and freshly squeezed fruit juices, like
mango, pineapple and grape.
Most attractions are ludicrously cheap to get to, particularly via the vast network
of buses (full of character), and fast and streamlined express trains which connect
the villages. The local passengers will all crowd around you to talk to "the foreigner",
and offer you some interesting views on life.
