India Trip - Day Sixteen - Pushkar
February 2, 2008

Because of the animals and drafts I did not sleep very well last night. Anuj got us out of bed at around 07:40 and it was quite a struggle to get out of my sleeping bag as it was nice and warm in there but very cold outside.Eventually I did get out as the sun looked great low on the horizon. I took a look down the well now that it was light, it seemed to go on forever and I could not see the bottom.

We had some breakfast and then started back on the camels heading for town.

The camel ride was a lot more uncomfortable today as my saddle was loose and kept slipping over to the right, which got quite annoying.

When we got back to the hotel I had something else to eat and sat by the pool for a bit before going back out.

We went back to town with Anuj and I had a blessing on the lake with a local holy man he then gave me a bracelet called a Pushkar Passport which was supposed to stop touts approaching me, but, it did not work.

I spend another few hours shopping for some bracelets for Sarah. Then I went back to the hotel again and sit around the pool until it was time to go to dinner.

We went to dinner at a nearby hotel and ate on its rooftop restaurant underneath a blue dome heated by a fire which we all sat around.

The owner set up a TV by us and put on a Bollywood movie but no one paid any attention to it and he then put on some music.

We then went back to the hotel and to bed.
