Jaipur

Posted on Mar 28, 2012 in India

Finally have a few minutes in an internet cafe to document the past 5 days of experiences in just a few short paragraphs!

First 2 days in Delhi stayed with the wonderful Sushma & Sunny who acclimatized us to Indian food, negotiation tactics, bazaar shopping, and general survival skills. Then on Monday we were on our own.

Luckily we were picked up by our driver Prem, who has been a gem in navigating the roads. Not an easy task as he dodges rickshaws, motorbikes, camels, elephants, goats, monkeys, donkeys, carts, and multitudes of people. Everyone going in their own direction. As Jason says … you need to just get in a zen frame of mind to navigate. It’s the only way to survive.

From Delhi we’ve come to Jaipur and spent the last two days visiting maharaja forts and palaces. Too many to list here.

Tomorrow we leave for Ramthamborne, where we next have a day safari in a tiger sanctuary. Taken lots of pictures but no way to upload.
