Jagat Niwas Hotel, Udaipur

Very happy that we splashed out for this hotel. It has a stunning view of Pichola Lake from our bed and the rooftop terrace! Our room also has Jharokha alcoves with day beds which jut out over the Lake so we can indulge in afternoon tea in luxury.

Jodhpur to Udaipur

​Had arranged to meet Brie at breakfast so we could show her where the ATM is and try and get more money out ourselves. Set off about 9am through Sardar Market, the stalls were still being set up so it was quite quiet. Bumped into the English guys again who were also on their way…

Fun at the Fort

​Had a masala cheese omelette for breakfast then walked up to the Fort to do the audio tour. Breathtaking architecture and views over the city, mountain ranges in the distance. Intricate details throughout, women in beautiful, brightly coloured saris. Some of the rooms were incredible. Mirrored ceilings, floors painted to look like a carpet. Spent…

Sunrise on the Ganges

The internet reports that the ATM situation may not improve for 2 – 3 weeks, because each one has to be recalibrated to dispense the new size notes. We awake early to get the sunrise boat at 5.45 am. What a magical sight, watching the people bathing as the sun rises gradually over the Ganges,…

Wake Up in Varanasi

​How exciting to wake up on our first morning in the ancient city of Varanasi! At breakfast, meet David from San Francisco, a software programmer going to visit offices in Bangalore to work. He’d just been to Khajuraho, which sounds very interesting. Vivek takes him to ATM, but no luck. He has no cash at…
