Jaipur Curries

After arriving late in Jaipur, we didn’t get up at the crack of dawn although we were still up and ready by about 9. We then walked half an hour across the Jaipur to the Old City where had curry for breakfast from a balcony overlooking the Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds) which is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen, we didn’t go in as the architecture outside is the most impressive aspect of the building. After breakfast and plenty of pictures we did a bit of shopping, purchasing a handful of colourful draw handles.

Arguably the most famous sight in Jaipur is Amber Fort which lays just outside the city. We caught a moto-rickshaw there who waited for us whilst we explored the many different rooms and courtyards. The views from the fort were incredible over the surrounding valleys. Once back in the Old City we had a late lunch of a selection of curries then ventured to the City Palace which is in the heart of district, unfortunately it was due to shut shortly so we decided to leave it fro tomorrow, head back to our hotel and chill (something which was much needed). We went out for dinner which was again a variety of curries which signified the first time either of us had had curry for every meal of the day.
