I'm in Jaipur....next time I make it to one of my favorite Indian food place (Jaipur's palace in Edmonton) I will know where they're talking about!
Jaipur is known as the pink city. Every building here is not really pink though...more of a red terracotta shade. It's so busy, of course, but there are some nicer places to visit here. The further we travel north, the more monkey's I see. There are monkeys just everywhere hanging out and wandering around.
Yesterday, we went to see the observatory (where they talked endlesslessly about the "science" of astrology)....don't really buy it. It was interesting though listening to their explanation of everything.
Last night, we went for some McDonald's. There is no beef anywhere. There are things like McCurry and McVegetarian burger. It was kinda neat to see. Next, we went out to a Bollywood movie.
Today, has been a pretty nice day. I took the morning easy while Simon and Alison went sightseeing and I am almost through the last harry potter book. But I am off to see the markets and hopefully find a sari today. Still waiting to hear for confirmation of my flight to oz. Not the most organized place to be. :) Looking forward to seeing the Taj.
