Train Travelling in India
James's favourite position!!!
Apologies for not putting much text around my previous entries. We have made it around some of Rajasthan as many of you have now seen on our updates to this site. Goa was relaxing and quiet in comparison to Rajasthan. Jaipur was our introduction to the crazy Indian life. Rathambhore National Park was quiet and had amazing scenery. Ajmer was a view into everyday life with our wonderful host family. Pushkar was a crazy hippy market town with the annual Camel and Horse fair which made it even more mad than usual I imagine. Now here are some of our pictures of Jodpur, it was here that we once again had a lovely host family, set in a huge house with 10 rooms for guests. We visited the usual forts, temples and palaces of the area. We also set off on an amazing mark 2 Range Rover for a day in the country. It was here we visited a rug weaver, potter, house where we were shown the Opium ceremony, and a small village where the "untouchables" live, the untouchables are people who have absolutely nothing, the lowest of the Indian caste system.
We have had to pull the emergency
Not British Rail
But it runs on time!
breaks on two trains now, the first because we got on the wrong train and it was pulling out of the station. The second because James was taking photo's out of the carriage door and the camera broke off it's string and went flying out of the train.
We have eaten amazing food, for all you non-veg people out there you would be converted to vegetarian food if you were here, it is truely amazing, even James is enjoying the lentils!!!!!
We have seen some amazing places and met the most wonderful locals and travellers alike.
Please keep the comments and emails flowing as it is so nice to hear from you all.
All our love
Tara, James and Chloe
