Agra and Jaipur
We've had many complaints for failing to post up but come one guys, were in the third world - its scary walking down these streets, lets see u try! lol kidding its quite safe here, weve just havent had a chance to get to any computers.
Well where did we get up to...hmmm the glory of the Taj Mahal. Our travel agent made us stay in Agra another day despite the fact there was very little to do, we went to see the agra fort - had some kids kids take pics of us saying that they thought we were japanese (you know, the usual) and then we decided to get all cultural and went to watch an indian movie by the name of Say Salaam India. No further comments on that movie....
Came back to our hotel to find our friend, the lizard, still crawling across the walls of our room didnt think wed sleep to well tonight - though we eventually managed to chase him out of the room - quite a triumph we must say.
The next day we left early for a 6hr drive to Jaipur. En route we went to Fatehpur Sikri, we were shown around by the guide who showed Shah Rukh Khan around during his filming of the movie pardes.
We got to Jaipur, felt it was a little overrated at first sight, wondered what hole in the wall hotel they had put us in this time, (though the otehrs werent bad, it helps to be pessimistic) and were suprised to find a serioulsy luxurious hotel and our room was to die for. (we could have moved into the bathroom if we could - thats how good it was) and the people were just amazing, curtious and so sweet.
We were taken on our tour of Jaipur the following day and saw several palaces and did some shopping.
We were sad to leave our hotel the next day, wed miss it and the people.
We left for DElhi the next day, our driver needed to be somewhere pronto so he drove maniacally, almost killing us or others in the proceess - he was doing 120 kmph on seriously bad roads and playing bumper cars with the traffic.
In Delhi, we spent the night in well in a seriously basic decaying hotel, except we paid
