Wednesday 25th March 2009 Jaipur, India

Our driver took us to the Amber Fort which was very impressive. There was the option of an elephant ride there but we decided to go by car! The street where our hotel was had elephants walking up and down all the time. Jaipur is known as 'The Pink City' as when Prince Albert came to visit, he said that pink was his favourite city so all the buildings were painted pink in his honour.
After the Fort we headed to The Albert Hall Museum then went for lunch and had our first Thali!
After lunch our driver took us a to a jewellery emporium which wasn't exactly the kind of place we wanted to go as they are really touristy and pushy!
In the afternoon we sunbathed on the roof, but not for long as it was so hot. When we got back to the room Sara started feeling really ill so we spent the rest of the day in the room with the telly on and i ordered some dinner, aloo gobhi and chapatis! We also watched "The Darjeeling Ltd" which was very apt as it's about 3 brothers travelling round India on a train.
