The beds are so comfy, its not so hot at night here, and everyone is very chilled out and relaxed, very different to hectic bombay.
Yesterday we found a tuk tuk driver who offered to be our guide for the day-he had a big sound system in the back so we drove around the narrow streets to blaring indian music
Finally we went to a kind of India Land! A museum of all the different kinds of villages from the Mewar area - there are life size huts and people dressed in traditional clothes performing music and dancing and selling handicrafts. I bought some glass bangles.
We've truly found the cheapest place to eat on earth - we went to a thali restaurant, traditional for this area, you have a tin plate with lots of little dishes of lentils and vegetables and spices, they keep bringing around chapati and rice, and everytime your dish is empty they fill it up until you can't eat anymore, and its 45p!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!All vegetarian and amazing
Unfortuntelty Domi is suffering with dodgy stomach, inevitatable as it's his first time to this part of the world, but im amazed it's taken a week so pretty good going!I'm still fine, touch wood, the food has all been amazing.
Tomorrow we head to Pushkar then onwards North, we've limited our trip to Rajasthan now - to head to the beach is a serious three day mission both ways, so i don't fancy a week of travelling just for a day or two in a place full of travellers, here its beatiful and relaxed, so we're just enjoying that before picking up the pac agin for the taj mahal craziness.
I'm off to watch the sun set over the lake palace, Udaipur should definetely be a place to head to if you ever come to India!
Love for now,
