Jaipur - the pink city
After a 6 hour bus journey we arrived in
In the afternoon we went to a carpet making factory. The man tried very hard to get us to buy a rug, but we resisted! Although 5 others of our group didn't have the will power!
Also stopped at a jewellery place and got some topaz earrings for Valentines'!
For dinner ordered a chicken tikka masala - didn't look anythnkgf like it does at home and was a lot hotter!!
We got a cycle rickshaw back to the hotel and felt really sorry for the cyclist as he was huffing and sweating a lot!!
In the morning we went to a place called Ladli - an organisation set up for street children to help them with hygiene, schooling, housing and jobs if needed. All of the children there were great - they had all made things for us to buy if we wanted - jewellery, shawls, bags etc..
We got a few gifts, bag and shawl!!
Amber Fort in
. Set upon a hill so had a bit of a walk to get there! Elephants were walking in the street too!! Another experienced guide showed us around the fort.

In the evening we went to see a Bollywood movie!! "Shaleem-e-ishq" James was thoroughly bored throughout the film as most of it was in Hindi and no subtitles!
