Karen and Cheri's best exotic Indian adventure Karen and Cheri are roughing it for two weeks in Rajasthan.

Day 8 - Mr Toad's wild ride to Jodhpur

USA | Monday, 17 November 2014 | Views [157]

Today we rose early to get in a few laps in the indoor pool, and a cleansing steam and sauna before breakfast on the lawn.  The service is truly impeccable, and we all feel like royal guests.  We are wondering if our 5 room suite was perhaps also enjoyed by Jackie O or Lady Di when they stayed here.  (Cheri and I drew the long straw and lucked out with the best of the suites - sweeeet!)

Our afternoon has been spent on the road, 6 hours drive to Jodhpur.  We've seen more of the "real India", rural and poor, not so pretty, trash all along the roadsides, cows everywhere, many on the roads which are an obstacle course of trucks and trailers darting in and out in both directions.  Women herd goats along the roadside or carry baskets of cow dung on the heads.  It's been a wild ride.  They say to drive in India you need three things: good horn, good brakes, good luck.  Fortunately we have all three!
