The hardest goodbyes in Delhi were saying goodbye to the house and our staff on Friday Afternoon. We then spent the night at the Trident Hotel, which despite being one of the best hotels in Delhi (and featured in the March edition of Wallpaper*) was a place we found easy to say goodbye to. They got our laundry wrong, our food orders wrong, our car booking wrong, and so on. In fact for a two year old hotel finished to a supposed high standard, it is really aging poorly.

The flight was pleasant, though again the frustration of an Indian sector with next to no food options other than Indian (despite being a Cathay Flight). My tatse for Indian food has evolved a lot over the past three years, but not far enough to embrace Indian breakfasts. It would have been nice to have something other than the generic airline omelette to choose from.

Our flight was delayed out of Delhi (what a surprise!) but once in Hong Kong the smooth roads and nice serviced apartment accomodation made up for it. We had a quick stroll around one of the luxury malls, visited a lovely parisian style tea house we found on our last visit and settled in for a quiet evening. As far as transitions and first days go, it has been very smooth and relaxed.
