Picking locations for Hack Your City gives me vertigo. There are just so many places with so many people. This week we’re talking about Delhi, capital of India, home to over 21 million, a city so old there are debates over what century it was founded in. In the early 20th century the British built another city inside it and called it New Delhi, which tells you a lot about imperialists. And now we’d like to learn how to spend a week, a month, maybe a lifetime in Delhi.
