man to get that bug ooot!
Its a bit weird being in Jaipur, its quite a culture shock. There are so many slimy young guys here here who really want to smooth talk you into a back alley and rob your wallet. All the time "How are you my friend?, Very nice hair"... Half an hour later they happen to slip in to the conversation that their cousin owns a tourist office and that your more than welcome to nip in for a cup of tea/good lying to! There's one sat next to me now who followed me half way round town today, he's reading this message as I type it! Oh look, he just ran out of the Internet cafe. Sweet, that worked a trick!
Other than the slimy guys, the people are pretty cool and if you wander down some small streets into the bazaars you get all these kids running in amongst the monkeys and cows to come and say hello and shake your hand. It really is quite touching.
