Sunrise til sun set was pretty much spent staring at the back of the broken seat on the usual 30 year old rickety bus. We arrived in Udaipur at 8:00pm and enjoyed a crazy tuk-tuk drive through the streets of the crowded city.
We’d had a tip on a great place to stay and our source didn’t let us down. The guesthouse was on the banks of the lake, looking out over the historical sights of the city. “Oh my god! This place is amazing!” Our room was even better; we sat on the pretty window seat taking in the view of the lake and the palace. Not even a small friendly rat in our room could dampen our spirits.
We sat on the patio overlooking the beautiful city and ate the best chicken korma in India. As we sipped beer we thought the night couldn’t get any better after our boring and mundane day… until fireworks lit up the sky over the palace on the other side of the lake. “Wow! It was worth getting up today after all!”
