Summary of Day 2
Engine on: 06:30
Engine off for the night: 18:30
KM travelled: 340
Issues/breakdowns: No breakdowns/tuktuk issues. The national highway was blocked off so we had to take a detour at one point - not a biggie though.
Challenges: weaving between trucks on the motorway and first time city driving.
Day 2 of the Rickshaw Run has thankfully gone to plan. We've had good weather the whole way, no breakdowns and we started at 6.30am so ensured that there wasn't a repeat of yesterday's night time driving. We arrived in Jaipur at 6.30pm after approximately 340km of driving and would have driven for about 9 of those hours with a lunch break to arrange accommodation, fuelling and letting the engine rest taking up the rest of the time. We're also following the mechanics advice and starting the day slow so that means the first couple of hours we putt around at less than 40kph.
We were all pretty exhausted so had a quick look around the pink city and had dinner at the hotel. Next stop the Taj Mahal!
