We're already looking forward to returning to the Hilton Janakpuri. Our room right across from the Executive Lounges is very comfortable and we feel right at home.
Drink and appetizers are available for Executive Floor guests in a main floor bar between 6:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., and we ate enough well prepared Chicken Tikka and a variety of other goodies that a more formal dinner is unnecessary tonight. We also enjoyed our first taste of Kingfisher Beer.
In case you didn't notice - and we hadn't - India's time zone is 30 minutes off from the hourly deviations found through much of the world. Why? Well, to some extent we can probably blame politics. The province of Newfoundland runs its time zones on the half hour as it well, but it has a couple of excuses. First, it didn't formally become a Canadian province until 1949. Second, it's smack dab in the middle of the Atlantic Time Zone, meaning that Happy Hour for Newfies and Indians is a half hour out of kilter with most everybody else.
