The last full day in Delhi
Fee to climb the minaret for a breathtaking view of Old Delhi in all its filth and glory, 100 rupees ($1.50)
Purchase of roast cashews, dried coconut, pomegranate pastilles and aniseed sugar for tomorrow's flight back home, 440 rupees ($11)
Masala tea from chai wallah in the tiny twisting streets of the market, 8 rupees (20 cents)
Heartbreaking cost of having to exert astonishing willpower and self-discipline to walk past the many, many fabric shops without entering because we are on a mission to the Metro station, 0 rupees
Metro train to Connaught Place, 9 rupees (22 cents)
Another full day in magnificent and chaotic Delhi – priceless.
