Jaipur city from the Tower
The day started with breakfast overlooking the Taj Mahal. Still looking impressive after a nights sleep!! After breakfast we headed out to find our driver and start the journey towards Jaipur. Kalu Ram, the driver, decided not to wait for us a the meeting point and instead started driving to find us, luck was on our side and we meet down a little street! On the way to Jaipur we stopped at a place called Fathepur Sikri to see the fortified ghost city. This was a truly great stop the fort was amazing and massive with great views of the surrounding countryside!

After the couple of hourse we spent aty the fort we continued our journey towards Jaipur stopping for the occasional break at the local little chef!! Arrival in Jaipur brought a few problems as all the hotels were fully booked and the only one that had a room wanted an extortionate amount for a tiny room....Kalu Ram to the rescue! The driver took us to a place he knew of which was actually pretty good. Dinner in the hotel was pretty tasty and we quickly sniffed out a local beer shop and settled in for the night, ending
