Frank and me have never been so happy to see someone ever. Julie told us where to book in yesterday, wow it is swanky, very high class and posh. It costs way more than our hostels, but we needed it. I know you will all be laughing that we folded so soon. But were so exhausted and deflated, we needed this.
Julie and her driver Gungen had flown in on a cloud to give us some luxery and help us find our love for India again. She has certainly done that.
First day we went to the Palace of the Winds in the main street, amazing. All the surrounding buildings have monkeys jumping around, its crazy. Then we went this astrogoly garden thingy, i dont know how to explain it.
Day two with Yogi Julie, We had the best day. We went to Amber fort which is full of monkeys its is like jungle book. Amazing. So comical. The monkeys run so fast. Then we went to the biggest canon on wheels in the world and it can fire 32km but it has only been fired once. Then we went to Amber palace, with the best art gallery. Then we went to Anoki Museum of fabric. Which was facinating and we tried doing fabric printing with these wooden blocks. Really appealed to this designer. On the way back we stubbled across this bath/pool which was built by the palace. And has a wall of steps, like an escher painting. You would not believe the photos.
That evening we were taking to this village which I can only describe as a mad Indian disneyland/chiltern open air. It was great it had magicians, entertainers, we did....
Indian dancing with a small child on stage, indian head massage (which made our hair look like we were mad professers), palm readers, parrott tarot readers, we shared a hooker with Julie and the best of best, we did a camel ride and elephant ride. It was wicked.
The best day yet!
