While we were waiting for him to arrive, Mikey and I went on a fruitless journey in a rickshaw to a bike shop miles away which turned out to be shut
Mikey set off to try and find new gear cogs for both our bikes and the Gicks set off sightseeing. The City Palace was pretty good although the free audioguide so long, I cant believe anyone ever listens to all of it. The weapons section was was the best bit, where they had truly horrific daggers, maces and spears, several with pistols attached. We also saw the largest silver objects in the world. (Jars to carry Ganges water to England when a Royal was visting). Getting out we got a rickshaw with the most annoying man in the world who kept taking us to shops we didnt want to go to and talking in a ridiculously fake American accent. We ditched him, did some more shoppping in the Bazaars and got a really aggressive rickshaw driver home. (Dad told him to calm down and stop being so agro with other drivers or we would get out.) Back at home Mikey had had no luck with the parts we needed so hopefully we'll sort that in Delhi.
For supper that evening we wandered down the road to Umaid Bhawan where we had a delicious meal on the rooftop, serenaded by a bog group of other dinners who seemed to be having some kind of Carol concert. So happy we are all together for Christmas.
