New Delhi Residency

The Residency from the street. Love the mosaic facade.

View down the street with the entrance to the park in the background.

The front porch.

The open plan living/kitchen area.

The bedroom.

View from my bedroom. I keep the blinds drawn.

Mr Sandeep.

Hey Audrey!

Exciting news: I am spending some time in New Delhi. Currently I am living in the New Delhi Residency, for artists, but I don't think someone has stayed here for quite a while, except for Mr Sandeep, the friendly caretaker with a penchant for burning incense. The Residency is situated in the bustling suburb of Lajpat Nagar, well, the bustling starts from around 10:00 or 10:30 in the mornings. I can watch  a bunch of little children playing on the balconies opposite the apartment. Audrey, I must admit that I am considering moving to a quieter suburb, and a smaller apartment with a television and a very big bed in it, and a magnolia tree outside the bedroom window, but I haven't made up my mind yet, I quite like the bed here: very Gandiji.
