Excellent hotel in beautiful setting directly on the river, friendly staff, friendly Maharaja owner. Stay a few days. Take a bike ride in to town to see the sights (Hotel can arrange). Make sure you get a riverside room.

Slight change in plan from the scheduled itinerary, we headed to Orchha to check out the old palace there and knock off a few more miles from the road to Agra. The palace at Orchha has certainly seen better days but were great fun to clamber around, with narrow stair cases leading to different levels all over the place. Our guide did his best to give us a history lesson but the names meant nothing to me and, I much prefer exploring sights like these myself rather ...

Day 7- Today was a later start than normal. Instead of waking up at the usual 6:30-7:00 window, we got to sleep until 7:30. What a luxury. Following my new breakfast of choice – a small bag of 'Chocos’ (Coco Pops for Europeans), we headed into Orchha to see the palace. After a quick tour ...

He got off at the next stop, made sure I got his seat and ...
... little faster in order to get to the palace before closing (and dark). A very short visit there but we got to see lots -- a beautiful and very symmetrical design. We were pleased to see one large monkey scurrying about, pretending we didn't exist. No time to make it to the temple before dark but we had a nice supper with Ikram, as tomorrow will be our last day together. Curried hard boiled egg and curry veggies along with garlic naan. Good, as ...
... he looked at me and said "water heater?", he also had never seen a kettle. I was so happy he had fixed my kettle I probably drastically overpaid giving him a pound but that's a 5th of the price of the kettle. I have to say the kettle was the highlight of my day. The next day Today we could not bear to go and look at any more temples or palaces or other things that after a while make my eyes tired we wanted to do something. We decided to hire bicycles. Being that its 20p per hour I'm ...
