We arrived in Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, after the camel fair. Jaipur is a Pink City, but it is a bit grimy. We rested here for a couple of days and caught up on school. When we arrived the first day we went for a little tour of the city in a tuk tuk. We had a great meal at a restaurant called Little Italy that was recommended in our guide book. The pizza and bruschetta tasted so good after one month of Indian food.
The next day was a bit lazy, but we did go to the observatory. It was really cool. The former king was very interested in astronomy so there were several inventions for us to look at. Hundreds of years ago they could figure things out like what time it was with only the shadow of the sun and a piece of marble.
After learning a lot at the outstanding Observatory we had a ice cream that was really yummy. I picked a vanilla almond drumstick.
When we woke up the next day we went on a hunt for a white outfit. My mom had this crazy idea to do a photo shoot with all the family in white outfits. While we were shopping we found a mall that had a little pool with big inflatable balls that you could climb in and play.
Everest and I both went in it at the same time and it was awesome!
We arrived in crazy Delhi, India after beautiful, quiet and lush Bhutan. When we landed at the airport we hired a pre paid taxi who said he knew where he was going, but actually he had no clue where to go. We drove around in circle for an hour. When we finally got to the hotel it was time for dinner and bed.
The next day I woke up to a bad case of “Delhi belly” so I did some school and chilled. Once I felt a little better we went to the city center for a tour and to have dinner. We had Mexican food because we hadn’t had any since Bangkok. Living in California we ate Mexican food about 5 days a week and we were all missing it.
The next day we went to the toilet museum where we learned everything you needed to know about toilets and sanitation. My favorite toilet was one that looks like a chair but really is a toilet in disguise.
