... to be. We walk into the courtyard of our haveli and all street noise disappers. It is a true oasis. It is over 200 years old and has been owned by the same family the whole time. It used to be the home of the prime minister of Bundi. We had our choice of rooms and chose a large room with antique furniture and furnishings, but a comfortable bed.
