After a few crazy cities it was a relief to arrive in he small rural Indian town of Orchha, only highlighted as a place of tourism in the last 10 years this is otherwise known as the hidden place. Or hotel ‘The Orchha Resort” was another nice surprise, situated behind the Hindu Palace – Jehangir Mahal and a five minute walk from the river we stayed in some stunning air con tents. – this was camping in luxury. On the first night I headed with the girls to do a cooking class with a local family, we learned how to make chai masala tea, veg pokhora, aubergine curry, pea and carrot curry, chutney and chapati’s – looking forward to testing these recipe’s when we get back. The rest of time in Orchha we spent drinking the best chai tea yet with a very friendly local man, people watching in the local town – including attracting a lot of attention from the local people who were fascinated with our white skin and blue eyes, we also explored the temple and was able to attend Hindu prayer ceremony.
