Here we begin our 2 week driving tour in a private car to see the sights of Rajasthan. We rose early to meet with a travel agent at the American embassy to help us plan part of our trip. Seems a little funny to be visiting the American and not Canadian but a friend recommended it and we're very happy to have had the contact. Also got to meet the ceramics instructor & some other teachers at the school there to guide us to a few pottery places of interest. 2 weeks car travel, a train & plane ticket later....we were on the road and feeling pretty organized. Had no idea that trains and planes booked up so fast!
So we had a long day of driving...lots of interesting sights along the way and stayed in a beautiful old haveli that night. They were setting up for a wedding across the street and many of the women were decorating themselves with henna in the courtyard of our haveli and warming themselves around an open fire while singing us to sleep.
Arriving into New Delhi and departing out of Mumbai. In between these 2 destinations lives experiences yet to be realized. Top of the list is street foods, local drinks, pottery, great music, lots of photos, bartering for everything, getting lost, riding motorbikes, swimming & deep breathing.
