Good morning everyone,
It is currently 10:30 am and we have just said bye to half of our group who are going back to Delhi to either go home or continue their travels. It was sad to say goodbye to such a lovely group of people - we really became a family. And so we celebrated in true tourist style by having a few shandys last night :) Hence why chris is still in bed as i type this.
Just before some of the americans left, Becky and Tera (just delightful), they gave me the most wonderful gift bags filled with clothes powder, spray for bites, snacks, hair bands, wet wipes, chewing gum and a magazine. Sheer luxury!!
The walk to the liquor store to stock up for our farwell party is a story on its own! The boys are deciding on what to get and how much whilst the shop keeper was desperatly trying to rip us off, and Jo, Tera and myself are hyperventilating as were being offered boiled eggs, asked to shake peoples hands, being pushed and of course being stared at. We have come to the conclusion that ladies do not go to the liquor store ha ha.
But today is a relaxing day, the only plan is that the remaining group : Chris, me, john, Jena, Tanya, Jo, Joe & Katia will meet on the roof terrace for dinner at 6pm :) Otherwise we all pottering about at the hotel, sleeping, washing clothes and maybe pop out for some shopping if we feel brave enough!
Although i bought my first thing yesterday, a green scarf - partly because its pretty but also so that i can wear a strappy top without having to wear a FLEECE!!!
Tomorrow we leave by train for Yoshs home, so relieved were staying in a group. Should be about a 5 hour trip and then a 3 day party! Happy Holi everyone! Oh and before i forget in our last hotel a family put on a show for us with dancing and music and asked chris to dance (again!) - I can not emphasise enough how truly HILARIOUS it was to see chris look so terrified yet angry at the same time, he motioned to me and so i motioned to someone else but eventually the family admitted defeat and no one danced.
Wishing everyone a great week, missing you all.
Love to all, love jess and sleeping beauty! (He will hate that i wrote that he he)
