Jaipur – The Pink City

Tucked a way in the centre of this lively city is our hotel ‘Bissau Palace’ residence of one of Jaipurs Nobility – the hotel is stunning with historic Indian/Victoria interiors – We were not at all expecting to stay somewhere like this on a GAdvetures tour so have to thank Raj our tour leader who told us we would be going somewhere basic. We spent our time in Jaipur visiting the temples Hawa Mahal, Amber Fort, The City Palace & The Water Palace.

In the evening we went to see a Bollywood movie – it was hilarious and very surreal – much more exciting than the cinema at home – every time a good looking man or women came on screen everyone would start screaming and whistling! Not to mention the people recording the film with their personal video cameras and the pigeons flying around the cinema roof! After the movie we had more curry and a lasso (milk and saffron), the food here is like heaven and so far no Delhi bellies.
