Around eleven the sun came out and the views through the car windows were incredible. The sun gives all the lightening to this incredible country. I guess it is due to the fact of their dark skin and the colors of what they wear.
We could already see Orchha in the distance… Damn! That was amazing… so many temples in the background and they all looked to the ones you see in “Jungle Book”! The main temples are Rajmandir and Jahangir Mahal, but it is also beautiful to walk around town.
We took some photos around town and around 3pm we headed to the hotel to check in and have something to eat. One hour later we were ready to roll! The lightening was fantastic and the hotel was right in front of a set of beautiful temples. For some reason you don’t find many tourists, which surprises me, as the place is breathtaking.
The best time to take photos in January is from 3.30 to 5.30, so when the sun was already down we walked around all little stores we found in our way.
At 6,30pm we were back in the hotel and we went straight to reception to ask for something to relief my cold. They had to go to the medical center to bring me something, so it took them more than 4 hours!!! We also asked for a heater….
We were so comfortable in the room watching movies and with the heater on that we didn’t even have dinner!
It is 9.30 am, 16th of January and we are already in the car driving to Agra!! Taj Majal is waiting for us! I hope we get some daylight when we get there!
