Second day and 91km today back to Jaipur with overnight in a proper bed !

Wow what a day, up early at 6.30 am (6.30/7.00/7.30) and soon on the road, well if you can call it that, the nice tarmac soon deteriated into the worse case of highway you can imagine with potholes, uneven surface, in fact it threw everything at us.  It made the going twice as tough !

I think that most people hit the wall and were depressed at some stage today !  But everyone is rallying together and those who were on a high drinking or eating Ali's various tablets, potions or liquids rallied all the others on.

Red bull also helped with Ron seemed to be on a flyer towards the end.!!! (Where did he get that energy from !)

The crowds again were amazing, all the schools were out and cheering, and when ever the group stopped locals appeared from no where and suddenly we had in excess of 100 people all chatting.

Eventually after another hard 60 miles, now with the total up to 120 we finally made it back to Jaipur.

With temperatures well into the 30's it was certainly a challenging day !

Then it was like bugs changing into butterflies... Its amazing how a beer, shower, clean clothes , proper toilet and swimming pool (not in that order) makes to everyone !

Colin even went for a quick swim in the pool and followed by a massage, which from what I heard it sounds like it was not that relaxing !

Half the group were so knackered that they stayed in the hotel for dinner, of which we had a great buffet curry for 650 roupees (and a few more beers) and the other half grabbed a tuk tuk, experianced the streets and visited KFC !  (what luxury)

Early to bed tonight and tomorrow sees a slightly shorter ride (all of 6 km) - wow 2 miles on our next stage...

3 nights camping to follow... OMG !

Blog might be hit and miss over the next three days due to coverage, but please keep cheering for us.... we need it !
