Rangniwas Palace Hotel
Travel Blogs from Udaipur
This was a big shopping day for Andy, and he spent hours in a shop selecting wall hangings for us to decorate our house with.
Later in the day it was puppet buying.
We got a cobra to accompany Jai's snake charmer, and a King that turned upside down to reveal a Queen and vice versa. These puppets were presents for Jai. Andy chose for …
We went to Chetak Circle, away from the old city area, which was your average Indian town scene, polluted and boring, though there was a musical instrument shop which suited Andy because he was on the lookout for a tabla.
