I met up with Jayson and Paul again in Jaipur as they had just been up to Amritsar to check out the golden temple and the famous daily ceremony of the closing of the Indian/Pakistan border. Unfortunately I missed Jaipur as I was too sick to leave my hotel room, so slept and drank a lot of water for two days. Luckily I had been here two years ago so …
