Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

Lunch at Lota
Looking at mysterious textiles sure develops the appetite. I decided to go back to Cafe Lota for lunch. They don't fire up the tandoor until lunch anyway, so I chose wisely. This is the "dal of the day" a delicately spiced lentil soup, served with the best looking naan or paratha (not sure now what I ordered) I've ever seen. The flaky layers are something I've not seen before. That tandoor is one smoking hot oven to get this type of oven spring. I had a saffron flavored lassi (my first in India because dairy drinks can be dodgy choices, kitchen cleanliness-wise.) Now I'm going to get a tuk tuk to Humayun's tomb, as it's on this side of town, and it won't be dark for a few hours yet.
