This is a great spot to come to for a few days. Large, beautiful clean rooms, great food, helpful staff and they were just finishing up the new pool when I was there that looked really inviting. The owner will arrange camel safari in the desert for you. A great experience you should not miss.

The girls are early happy and exhausted - sorting out photos - should be some great ones particularly with the go pro - should be a good triple M movie coming up!

Unfortunately only two of the temples were open before 11am, so we popped into the palace museum for an hour or so. Once again, this royal building was very different from jodphur and jaiphur's palaces. The decoration was much simpler, still very beautiful, but with less guiding and barely any painted work. Much ...
... chai tea it gave us the energy for the return trip. Guido was overjoyed to be reunited with his beloved Kaloo, such was their bond. He even managed side saddle for the return trip, switching effortlessly from one side to the other without so much as a flicker of disgruntlement from Kaloo. Dean, however, sat rigid and tense again. I tried to relax into the bouncy camel rhythm, but let's face it, it's never gonna be a limousine ...
... we found our hotel road. After freshening up we decided to stay and eat at the hotel as the restaurant had good reviews on Tripadvisor and in the Lonely Planet. It's not often I make the wrong choice about food but I didn't go for the tandoori butter chicken which Gem had gone for. My curry was good but hers was amazing! Luckily for me she shared some of it with me. Our waiter made us laugh, when we had a few kingfisher beers in the afternoon he would come up after you ...
