the 14th was good. stopped at an atm and got out alittle money so i can still do things here. the driver is annoying by bothering about money and gifts (he wants my brother's camera).
left for Jaipur at 8 o'clock in the morning. got to Jaipur alittle after 3 o'clock. the hotel is nice but 2 people showed me to my room, two people expecting a tip that don't have.
the hotel is very nice, i got settled in and went to Chowkhi Dhani at 6 o'clock. its a resort that features all kinds of Rasjastany culture, food and shows. the magician was hilarious,
even though i couldn't understand a word he said he was great. he had a little rock that he threw on the ground, then picked it up, tapped his hand and it turned into a coin.
he gave the coin to a girl from the audience and she threw it on the ground, but it disappeared before it hit the ground. the food was good, tradition rasjistanie, i believe, roti with things to dip it in.
couldn't eat very much, i got very full fast. also, it wasn't very spicy, nobody here in India has brought the spice the way i like it yet. watched some dancers, they were great, they would
bend over backwards and pick things up with their teeth and even pick pins up with their eyes. crazy, i got video! Jaipur is very nice, seems more modern than Delhi,
not shops and stuff, not so many temples. Elephant ride in the morning, Yay!
