As we all got in the Tuk Tuk to head to the place where we'll be working the next few weeks, I was crazy nervous! The driver played some really cool Hindi tunes as we cruised though the city. As we passed through the neighborhoods, I became increasingly saddened at where all the kiddos we'll be teaching actually live. They reside in tents on the streets in ...
... which involved him moving a muscle or answering a simple yes or no quedtion was way to much trouble.
The only good thing about this was that it was close to the main attractions we wanted to see.
We baught a "composite ticket" for 350rs which allowed entry into 5 sites over 2 days. In the afternoon we only had time to do one of these so we went to Hawamahal which is also known ad the palace of winds which was a 2 minute walk from ...
... It's only barely 8pm, but I can hardly keep my eyes open. There is so much to see and experience that it literally wears me out just trying to absorb it all. Until tomorrow.

... in art? No. "But come have a look, a look free." Don't want to be rude so fine, I'll have a look. Then it begins, "artwork by local painter, very cheap. How much you want to pay?"

... down stairs with our head wrapped in scarves as we were told, ( i think for future that actually swimming caps might be more effective) we looked like orthodox Jews.

I give this hotel three stars not because it is a three-star hotel, or anything resembling one. This is, as the name implies, for travelers on a tight budget. We got a six-person hotel for about 20 Euro per person per night. Better than my original plan to find a park. The beds were surprisingly decent and we even had a TV in my room, providing an instant buzz-kill when we found out that America launched itself into a third war via BBC.
