Fun Fact Friday: Old Delhi

Delhi_Old Delhi Wires_wm

Fun Fact Friday! Old Delhi, India was originally called Shahjahanabad and was built by Shah Jahan in the middle of the 1600s. It served as the capital of the Mughal Empire and is home to Lal Qila (Red Fort), Jama Masjid (Friday Mosque) and lots and lots of shops and even more people! Not to mention so many auto rickshaws, cars, motorcycles and carts that the volume of noise on the street is deafening. What shocks visitors the most I found are the sheer number of wires criss-crossing everywhere. Monkeys use them as highways and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to where the wires go or how they are attached.
