They are so Cool!

Shopping in India





When we travel we like to shop in the local markets. I hate to barter so I don't buy very much but when I get home I wish I would have made the effort...

Quite Popular


In India we felt like we were famous!
So many people wanted to take our picture...or just stare at us...:)

Today we watched Oprah in Jaipur, India visiting the Palace which was quite the production.
One night when we were just walking around the city of Jaipur and a light parade greeted us...Not quite as cool as on Oprah but pretty awesome!

Elephants!

In Kruger Park we rented a car and were able to play with the elephants...
We had so much fun because we really felt like we were interacting with them!
A few times we were a little too close for comfort...

Golden Triangle by Train


The train route we took...
Some of our trains were air conditioned sleepers which are great but one of the 6 hour rides was on what we like to call the cattle car...not so good...
We started in Delhi and took the train to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. The next day we took a train to Jaipur-the pink city- for a couple of nights. From there we went to Jaisalmer-the golden city-with a very cool old fort where many people still live made of sandstone on the hill(this is where the camel safari started). Our last stop was Jodpur-the blue city- where they have an old village with lots of blue houses with a fort on a hill. In Jodpur we only had a day so we just shopped the textile markets and saw how many locals make bracelets,scarves,etc...very eye opening...
