Delhi winter morning in 2019 goes foggy and smoggy

Winter morning in New Delhi 2019

It had been five years since my previous visit to Delhi, India.

The New Delhi airport was looking kind of same, but the air outside was different. I realized the foggy sceneries which I had wondered in the recent hindi film Rajma Chawal from 2018 had actually been the real Delhi. And then I remembered the video I had seen in Twitter last winter, where the winter fog in Delhi had once been so bad that cars were crashing to each other.

Luckily this time the Delhi winter fog and smog were not that bad. Though later on my continuing flight from Delhi was delayed with couple of hours. The reason being the fog only.

Otherwise in January Delhi was chilling cold and warm clothes and winter jackets were needed. I found Christmas decoration like Christmas tree and reindeers with the sledge by the road to the airport. What a nice way to greet the tourist and cheer up the landscape!

Since I was travelling early morning, no traffic jams were met. Most of the motorcycle and scooter drivers were wearing helmets for their protection, but many passengers were still lacking those.

The stadium building in Delhi was a new sight to me. Find the stadium, the good old rickshaws and other means of public transport together with some chilly Delhi winter scenes from January 2019 with the fog and smog here in this video, and subscribe INDIVUE for more travel and art to come!

Best of Oslo sights -video

Talking about the Travel Opus to Europe, Oslo in Norway is one of them very essential places to visit in Europe. Although it is in many ways very similar to the neighbouring capitals Stockholm and Copenhagen, it still has its own, kind of royal feel to it. The small size of Oslo is also charming.

The good thing is that, although Norway does not belong to EU, it was still very smooth and uncomplicated to travel between Helsinki and Oslo by air.

Here are the 10 must see sights of Oslo in a short video. Images by Indivue.
