If you leave plenty of time the roads are always clear and there are never any queues at security.
Security was as smooth - Although I had to remove the content of my bag, laptop and ipad, (yes I am taking the iPad this time) kindle spare hard drive and the iPhone charging cable.
Then duty free shopping to waist time - I do remember the time when a bottle of whisky was cheaper in duty free than Morrisons, not sure what has gone wrong in T4 but should have shopped in the supermarket for my cooking whisky.
The plan is to drink a few beers and time warp so I wake in Delhi fresh for the trip.
Now boarding a Boeing Triple 7 - Sister of the queen of the skies - Extra leg room on the over wing exit -
The plan worked - Apart for waking for food and to top up on beer I slept most of the way to Delhi.
Almost straight through passport control and bag collection. All so very smooth.
Weather is a bit foggy 12C so still jumper order.
Collected and taken to hotel 1 - Colonel's Retreat Near Airport- Very comfortable
He was very proud that they had running hot water.
My driver and guide for the next 15 days:
Happy looking fellow
Time to chill before going to get food and beer -
Just had a lovely meal and a couple of extra strong kingfishers.
It might appear as a private dining room but iI think I am the only one staying here -
