Up early as we were on the 5:55 train.Had to get the guy to open the massive gates of the Haveli so we could get out.The train was 50 mins late leaving - no reason but a bit frustrating.
We arrived at Jaipur and went to our hotel to freshen up before a quick look at the city.It's big, lots of traffic (and smog) and very noisy.
Next day we went sightseeing round the old town saw a couple of palaces and an astronomical observatory (16th cent.).That was different - mainly consisted of sundials for measuring time and position of various planets.
Jaipur is noted for it's gems and jewelry - so we had to have a quick look round the shops.The people here give you even more hassle - 'please see my shop, only look, no need to buy' - first time it's OK, 250th it gets tedious.
Next day we went out to Amber which has two fantastic (and very large) forts - one for winter and one for summer.They were good and it was good to get into the country side - the driver said there are tigers around but I reckoned that to be bulls**t.
Overwhelming memory of Jaipur is the traffic - much prefer the smaller places in India.
