I went for an early morning swim to wake up and then had a shower. We then set off for a 5 hour trip today. We stopped for lunch at Midway Lodge.
We also stopped at Fatehpur Sikri which is a town surrounded on 3 sides by a wall and a man made lake. The Raj built it in honour of a wiseman who had blessed him so that he would get a baby boy. It …

Jaipur is very different to the other cities we have visited in India. Outside of the old town it is quiet and relaxed. No constant attempts from street hawkers and beggars to grab your attention, nice, wide pavements to safely walk on, large open parks to enjoy. A much more peaceful place. Today, Boxing Day, we visited the Old City, known as the Pink City because Majarah Ram Singh painted the entire city pink when Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert was ...
