Today I arrived in Dehli, India!! :)
This is a picture taken from the plane as we flew over the Himalayas!
The Himalayas stretches from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, India, Bhutan,
Burma, and China. It separates India from China. They are one of the youngest
of mountain ranges dating back about 80million years to the Jurassic era when
the world's land masses were split. The range includes Mount Everest
(the tallest mountain in the world) and K2!
Beautiful metal sculptures of different traditional hand signs.
I have arrived!!!!!
I met Miss Iceland from my year at Miss World in London and we both flew together to Dehli!! I was so happy to have her with me she was on of my best friends at Miss World 2010!! We are REUNITED AGAIN!!!!

After what seemed to be the longest flight in my life (I'm not dramatic at all am I?!) we arrived and met all the other girls: Miss Slovenia, Miss Bolivia, Miss Bikini International (jealous boys??!!) and Miss Canada - also from our year at Miss World!!
Picture of all of us together :)
Then we all went straight to a press conference in Dehli!! In an effort to increase awareness about Global Warming and the importance of trees we each planted a tree on our arrival. We discussed the importance of trees for fresh, clean oxygen, which is of particular relevance in a city that is as polluted as Dehli is.
Here I am planting my tree!
We then met the gorgeous Miss California Internation and her boyfriend who is also her escourt as she has been travelling around India for the past two months. He was born in India but now lives in California with Jenny!

I then had my first experience of India Cuisine!! What a treat!! :) Thanks to my boyfriend I am a lover of spicy food! Before I met him I couldn't handle spice, but now, having been with him for a while I have been forced (willingly!) to liven up my taste buds and increase the spice in my life!! So I adore the food here!!! Poor Miss Slovenia is having a rough time because she can't stand spicy food!!!! When I say spicy I mean she doesn't even put black pepper on her food!! So imagine her difficulty over here..! She has to order food with 'no spice' which the chef didn't quite understand and unfortunately she had to have snacks from the mini bar to survive!! My favourite meal thus far is Paneer Tikka Masala which is cheese in a tikka sauce which is just GORGEOUS with garlic naan bread!!

A close second is Aloo Mata Tariwala which is a vegetarian dish with peas, green beans, green peppers served in a spicy curry sauce!

We then got dressed and went to a press conference in a hotel in Dehli where journalists from all over the capital and many government officials and embassy officials attended also. We stood taking photographs for about 2 1/2 hours and I was literally falling asleep on my feet having had only 3 hours sleep at that stage...!

Camille Boutique in Malahide. My jewelry is by Crystals and Co:)
Then it was up to bed for some R&R :)
Night all <3
