The Pink City

We arrived in Jaipur known as the pink city at around 2pm, after a less than perfect lunch of greasy Indian fare we met up with our tour guide to the City Palace, part of which is still occupied by the Jaipur Royal family!
We then walked a little bit through the busy streets of the city before going to a gem stone cutting factory
On our way to our amazing hotel, Pear Palace Heritage we ran into Rafal, Anneliese, Kazu and Lukas... I was yelling out the car window as I unexpectedly spotted them walking down the street ( yes creating a spectacle!) we made plans to meet up for dinner at Niros.
Our hotel was fab and I want to post video, but blogger is not being nice!

Tuesday morning we rode elephants up to the Amer fort...I have decided that is how I would always like to travel!

After all of the touring we hit the (5 hour) road to Agra as Wednesday is the Taj Mahal! We ended the evening with a massage, steam and jacuzzi (thank you ITC Moghul hotel for such an amazing spa and staff!) and a nice glass of wine over dinner.
