This Monday afternoon, some of the FPW staff and participants went on a walk-bout with Adrian Fisk in the narrow alleys of Delhi's Chandni Chowk. This is the major street in the walled city of Old Delhi, originally called Shah Jahanabad. It runs through the middle of the walled city, from the Lahori Darwaza of the Red Fort to Fatehpuri Masjid.

Chandni Chowk is replete with authentic Indian food, delicacies and sweets to saris, and from spices to automobile cannibalized parts.

The above photograph was made at the spice market at Pili Kothi Chowk (or Pul Mithai).
