Well the flight to Mumbai and then on to
When we got back to their house, we ended up ordering our new favorite take-out meal, Chicken Kathi Rolls for dinner and stayed up talking with Murli and Darshan about our travels, etc. Theo (their daughter’s dog) was happy to see us and gnaw on my arm a bit. We aren’t sure what to do tomorrow since we leave just after midnight but we don’t want to just sit around all day feeling like condemned people so we will try to figure out something in the morning.
Well we woke to another stellar Jyanti breakfast - Jyanti is their housekeeper and cooks a mean paratha and Indian scrambled eggs. Afterwards, we moped around trying to figure out what to do, eventually deciding that, since we would need a cab to the airport tonight, we might as well just get one for the day and try to see some of the sights that we have so far missed in
Murli and Darshan graciously offered to let us leave our bags and stay until it was time for our flight so we bailed on the idea of using Hilton points to go swim at the Hilton in Gurgaon and hang while we wait for the flight.
The taxi guy was a little lost and confused and showed up a bit late but eventually took us several places around
Rajgaht which is the Mahatma Gandi Memorial park where we saw the cool looking Saddhu gathering flower petals to place on the tomb.
We stopped by the Dili Haat Market for Cindy to buy some last minute gifts with the few rupees we had remaining. She hemmed and hawed over one particular bracelet (this one is for her…) and eventually bought it and a shawl. I roamed around taking pictures of the cool little Rajasthani elephants while she shopped. I did end up talking with two Kashmiri kids trying to convince me to buy something. I told them that we were down to our last 400 Rupees and that my wife was haggling over a bracelet but that if she had anything left, she could talk to them. They asked how long we had been in
We got back to the house and were treated to a huge and awesome dinner from Rimpys by Murli and Darshan. They are the nicest, most gracious people and we have enjoyed staying with them. One day hopefully they will show up in
