After a couple of days of air and train travel we are now in Jaipur, the Pink City. We found a very nice hotel with hot showers, which we both badly needed. I walked out into the courtyard this morning to find monkeys swinging around and peacocks flying about. There seems to be a new suprise everytime I turn around. We took an autorickshaw around the city today with our new friend and driver, Ali. He is a karma believing muslim that is about our age. We explored some ancient buildings and tombs today, including the Hawa Mahal and Amber Fort. We also checked out the Jantar Mantar which is a huge astrological playground full of enormous stone instruments used to map the many celestial beings. Our favorite thing here is the many elephants that inhabit the roads along with the many cars, cycles, people and other animals. Off to Agra and the Taj Mahal tomorrow...

Hey man sounds like you are both having a great time. I just flipped through all the happenings - no sleep, monkeys, afternoon tea, ganja, and snakes shake'n there money makers. Though I have never met Bean, I can see that we share the same fondness/amazement for the reptile rumba. I look forward to new postings and be wary of those who speak of Jose S. Linares. - Bryan
