Jaipur, India

5 March 2024

It is a very early morning as we begin our drive southeast to Jaipur. Our driver, Suraj, drives on the left side, a holdover from the British colonial period. We depart Delhi, pass the International Airport, and eventually enter the NE4, the Delhi to Mumbai Highway.

This new eight-lane highway will be the longest expressway in India and projected to reduce driving times by half. For Indians, this construction accomplishment by the current government is a destination in itself.
