Chandelao Garh, a beautifully restored 300 year old fort, is now an awesome hotel located in a small village in Rajasthan. My mom loves great architecture. I was fortunate enough to have stayed in The Carriage Room where they stored the horses and the carriages years ago.

I read 2 Nancy Drew books. One was called Into Thin Air and the other was A Dressing for Disaster. I would highly recommend both for people who like mysteries.
