We had our first bout of sickness, which meant leaving the previous city an hour late. Then came the real fun.
The next day we went to the Pushkar temple and lake, where we got this excellent group photo taken.
A very rare and special experience later that night--I got drunk. I rarely ever drink, and a couple of the girls on tour who were kicking back several Kingfishers with every meal were giving me a hard time about it. So I promised to drink that night. Before dinner, we had a tribal dance performance where I knocked back a couple of rum and cokes and vodka and 7-ups. Being such an infrequent drinker, I'm quite the lightweight, so four or so drinks was enough to get me severely inebriated. I did some not-so-smooth dance moves when invited up by the dancers, including a yoga-inspired backbend, which I repeated at dinner for those who missed it. But I soon succumbed to the intoxication, and had to be escorted back to my hotel room by Joanna (thanks dear!) to begin to sleep it off. Surprisingly, I wasn't particularly hung over the next morning.
