Although the temple was free there was a hidden fee. I was taking a picture of the view when a man behind says he is the high priest of the temple and welcomes me
From the temple we also took lots and lots of pictures of the large black faced monkeys which were leaping in the trees. So glad we are not buying rolls of film!
Arrived in Udaipur, a couple of hours south of ranakpur, udaipur is the city where octopussy was shot, and the lake is full for the first time in 15 years, so the people are celebrating. our hotel was overlooking a different part of the lake to the famous part, but provided beutiful views, and we all got up for sunrise at 6, with across the lake, to the moutains, with mist sitting on top of the city, and monkeys sounds, and the calling to the mosque by the muslims. added bonus of catching the football, and the cricket.
after arriving we went down to local show, which again was with puppets, without the sqeeking, which was a little borring after a while.(there was one good bit, titled 'boy who loves girl, but every time he tries to bed girl, she turns into man, and head butts him ' yes i added the head butt part, but thats what happened)
around this time there were a few tight tummies (especially mark), but nothing that could keep us down to long, and i'm still asking for everything extra spicy. city palace tour, boat ride, temples, the pictures show you. especially the famous lake palace hotel. beutiful city, which we capped off with a slightly more expensive meal on the lake at night. good service, and food, more fireworks in a very romantic city. expenisve means 10 pounds for 3 meeals.
damm the mozzies, in the south they love me (danny). we moved on early the next morning.
pictures coming when technology allows, the same with spell checking. dreaming of broadband.
