As we prepare to embark on Sixmonthswithoutruby 2.0, I thought it only fitting that I give a quick run down of how our last trip ended up. Here goes.
Our journey through Rajastan, India ended with one last stop in Udaipur – apparently known for their roof top cinemas showing James Bond, however we somehow managed to miss all of that. Oops. Let’s be honest. I was getting a bit sick of lugging round that giant Lonely Planet. We did see a bunch of other stuff though… like KFC on our way into the city which we painstakingly walked back to find on our first night. Instant regret.
We found a lovely room for the night, which then started smelling rather like sewage so we promptly moved the next morning.
We caught up on a bit of sleep, and so did the dog.
Then we visited the palace and took a fancy boat ride.
I spent an afternoon painting a small horse at an art school.
We fed our hotels tortoise a tomato.
Then fed ourselves with tasty desserts – the first of their kind we’d come across in India.
The highlight of Udiapur was finding the tastiest curry on this planet, eating it four days in a row then asking the owner of the restaurant if he could teach us to cook it. He promptly shipped us off to his sisters house (not before I fell down a flight of marble stairs) and we spent the afternoon making our own dinner with the loveliest woman of all time.
Next time: Goa and Mumbai.
