Dec 27 Bundi – Pushkar
Day of travel….and HAND!!!
Greetings from Richard,
The B team is writing, Carole has an infected finger, lingering from a Mesa cactus thorn she picked up at the end of October. It seemingly was better, but had flair up here in India. We made a trip to the local hospital, Mittel located in Ajmer, about an 11 kilometer drive from Pushkar. Annan, our car driver for this section of out travels, suggested this location. With a bit of trepidation, we agreed to give it a try.
Everything at the hospital went smoothly. Carole had a doctor consultation, followed by a thorough lancing and draining of the infected finger, wound care and a prescription for pain and antibiotic, grand total of 1,250 rupees, the outrageous sum of $22!!
Carole is sitting next to me as I write, closely supervising me.
Dec 28 – Pushkar- Destination for Indian tourists too.
Another B team entry. Carole is feeling fine, but when you see the photo of her bandaged hand you'll understand why she is presently typing impaired. We wandered the streets of the most quiet city we've visited to date, the most holy city of Pushkar. Less pollution, quieter and a nice change for
Pushkar is a most holy city for Hindu's, and a site visited by many of India's citizenry. It's also vacation time for Indians, so we are definitely out numbered here. Kind of the Gatlinburg of India, only spiritual. Also a lot of former and present western 'flower children' in this area.
