Where I stayed
went to the capital of Rajasthan yesterday from Pushkar, quickest journey yet so not too bad in the bus!!
we arrived at the hotel and then werent too long there and wernt traight into the city
3 million peop live in this city and you can tell by the volume of people!!!
auto rikshaws today were being watched by the polie sop the toll metre was on so we didnt have to barter which was a first!!!
we were shown where the famlus big havela was no need to go in its pretty big and it was stunning!
then the city palace which none of us wante to go in either because the Udaipur palce was so good nothing could really op that
though the observatory next door o the palace was pretty cool, th observatory which was ful oif students mainly was the old way that the Indians in Jaipur used to tell the time and other reeacrh, the models were great to see, they were huge concrete pieces
Kri and i then went into the heart of the city just to wander, and i really didnt like it, so busy, not too hot its just the people everywhere not hassling as such just want to tak to you get you into their shop! tiring TIME!!!!
the veing yesterday was cool though saw first bollywood film!! los of singing dacing and the story line was to do with cricket!! the indians love cricet just mention your from aus or engand and they wil mention a player!!!
huge complex the cinema was in
but overall in Jaipur i just chilled i wasnt up for the hassle to be honest and it gave me a chance to wash colthe!!
the city is similar to delhi on smaller scale, rubbish everywhere!! cows everywhere, dogs too everyone spitting welcome to India!!!
