April 12: We weaved through an endless miscellany traffic: cars, truck, busses, tractors, scooters, tuk-tuks, carts, rickshaws, bikes, pedestrians, and livestock. We saw many camels and donkeys pulling carts, piled high with goods. We stopped about half way at a restaurant and had samosas and cold drinks for lunch.

Jaipur, from first impressions, is a more progressive and cleaner city. There are still small streets crowded with people and vendors, shanty towns, poverty but there are also beautiful modern buildings. The first section we drove through was the financial section of the city. Perry, our CEO gives very good explanations on the history of each city, the kings, rulers, etc, but it's hard to remember it all.

We arrived at our hotel Fort Chandragupta - a heritage building. It is set back behind a high wall. On the street side, the wall is plain, but from the guests point of view, it is more decorative. Unfortunately, the WiFi was not working although they kept promising. We relaxed for awhile, took some cold showers as there was no hot water. We found out later that you have to tell them your room number and that you need hot water, then they turn it on! The room is quite elaborate. We were surprised when we first walked in as all we saw was a chaise lounge, a couch, TV and fridge. WHO gets the chaise lounge and who gets the couch. Then through another door we entered the sleeping area with its king size bed and a big bathroom with a marble tub and elaborate "throne"
