When I went through security I was told that I got a seat upgrade (again!). I think that it may have to do with the fact that I have a points card – I checked in with Allison’s card number so that she could get my extra points...I didn’t have a card, so I figured... Continue Reading →

Another Friday the 13th!!! Nothing too dramatic happened today, however, so that is a good thing!!We had an amazing tour today. Probably the best we’ve had thus far, actually. Ohhh...but, to regress...the breakfast at this hotel was superb! It had huge variety of everything and even had brown bread! Anyway, back to the tour. We... Continue Reading →

We had the morning to kill before our 2pm flight, so we headed back to the market because we all felt kind of ripped off from our mini visit two days ago when we had our tour. It was nice because mornings here start slowly. By the time we got into town, it was about... Continue Reading →

Today was the festival of Holi! It was also my birthday...which is actually kind of cool that the two fell on the same day! Because of the festival, it was highly recommended that we didn’t go out into the streets, as Holi tends to get a little out of control. It is the festival of... Continue Reading →

We just said goodbye to Rajish and the helper guy (perhaps his name is Mono...we never really did get his name!), and it was kind of sad! We’ve had an excellent couple of weeks with them, and it was sad to say goodbye! I guess we were lucky to get such a nice driver who... Continue Reading →

We had a simple breakfast this morning before heading out on our tour of the city. I have started bringing my little jar of peanut butter to breakfast with me because I only have 5 days to use it up! And, the protein is a nice change from eggs. Remind me not to buy any... Continue Reading →

We are definitely in the desert now! The drive changed the landscape dramatically and we left the hills and mountains behind and drove mostly on a straight road with flat desert surrounding us! It is very cool, actually. I’d imagined more of India to look like this, to be honest, so I am glad that... Continue Reading →

Today was a lovely day...of not too much happening. Breakfast was leisurely and with lots of options all presented (even without being ordered) – and I even got hot chocolate, which makes this the best breakfast by far!We had a half-day jeep tour today! It was quite fun and different from the other tours that... Continue Reading →

We had a very excellent half-day tour of Udaipur today. Our guide was very detailed and spoke to everyone, which is always a bonus. We started off my heading to the city palace, which is across Pichola Lake from our hotel. We walked through the gardens of the palace to visit a Jagdish Temple. It... Continue Reading →

I can’t believe that in one week today I will be headed to the airport on the way home! It doesn’t feel like I’ve been in India for three weeks already!We got up and battled the porters to take out own things down to the lobby and out to the van (as per the normal... Continue Reading →
