Pushkar

We arrived in Pushkar by bus as there are no trains, it's in the opposite direction to Delhi and although we've done a little backtracking it's nice to be away from Jaipur.

Pushkar is a very small, very religious town based around a lake that's supposed to have appeared when Brahma dropped a lotus flower. The pace of life is very slow and relaxed, and we no longer have to worry about street sellers trying to rip us off.

We haven't done an awful lot other than sit around, read our books, drink tea and relax. There are plenty of places to eat, and we've had some great meals, although I think I'm missing a few vitamins as I've picked up quite a bad cold. Tabi, the travelling pharmacy, has given me all kinds of pills so I expect it will be gone in a few days.

We've made plans to head off to Delhi tomorrow, this involves taking a bus to the nearest big town and then taking a train from there. Neither of us are looking forward to Delhi as we have preferred the small towns to big cities, but we only have to spend 2 nights there before our flight to Bangkok.

Tabi's updated her blog, which you can read here.
