Old Delhi surrounds the Mosque. Tiny streets filled with warrens of thousands of shops all competing for the business of the bustling crowds. Specialized chaos. Specialized because each area has its particular specialty: the paper section (for stationary, raw paper, etc.), jewelry gems and gold section, the books section (particularly crowded as school exams are about to commence), housewares (copper and brass, aluminum, etc., pots and pans), etc. All bristling with people, tuk-tuks, motorcycles, bicycles, carts, etc. Donkey and ox carts were banned recently because they interfered with traffic (!!!).
