    Re: half day layover in Delhi, suggestions?

    If you're going to Old Delhi, the quickest way would be the metro (half a day is not very much). Very fast, cheap, and clean -- avoid rush hour of course.

    Re: Best underwear

    Oh yes you are. I actually had a (laugh out loud) belly laugh reading your "rant" to Julia.

    Thanks for the tip Michael.

    Re: Shoes suitable for Trekking?

    I've discovered that Asolo's and Raichle do a narrower fit, which is good for me. My feet were swimming in the Scarpa's when I tried them on. I preferred the Asolo Powermatic 200 to the Raichle...
