Drive to Mandawa (270 km, 7 hrs)

A travel blog entry by phildyard

After lunch, we drove for another two hours to reach our hotel in Mandawa. And what a hotel! We are staying in a converted 18th century mansion - the Mandawa Haveli. Just look at the photos!

Before dinner, we had own own puppet show, sitting around a log fire in the courtyard. Then we had a buffet dinner on the rooftop of the hotel, again heated by a log ...

... We ha ve learnt a new word 'chello chello' walk walk. It's quite firm. I sit outside the shop with a couple of other fellows, warm evening, lovely trees, faded red ochre wall. Very calm high touch. Aromatic smell of urine. Each to his own. Dinner on the terrace of the hotel, selection of vegetable curries, delicious. Two Kingfisher quarts.
