I love India, but you know what i actually hate? How bloody itchy i am, seriously, how can i be bit so much, my legs are covered and ive been wearing trousers fro the last 48 hours my chest has 2 bites, and im not even exposed serously?! i'd rather be sunburnt... no id rater not be sunburnt at all. but i have a slight tan! yes! paley pink face is tanned haha! its not the worlds gretest tan, but for me, its impressive.
anyhow enough of my lumpy brown itchy skin. currently in Pushkar, a city which i never really gave much thought to back home but my trusty travel agent booked me in to this place originaly after seeing jaipur, but i was picked up today after a comfortable overnight train journey from amritsar to delhi, and my driver said hed arranged to go to pushkar first cuz it just made sense, cool ok! So 9 hours later in another hotish, car journey, but with a really good book he just happened to have in the car, we arrived just in time to see the sun set over the holy lake in the centre of the city. Pushkar is holy to the hindus as brama is said to have dropped the lotus flower here when making the world. and, the lake is full of bones from people after their bodies are burnt, nice eh? it also has the only temple dedicated to brama in the world, which is kinda hard to believe as he is a big deal in their religion but hey ho shal be checking that out tomorrow along with the mandatory knick nack shopping which has to be done.
Amritsar blew me away, no actually, the golden temple blew me away, the city, not so much, ok, im a white girl, i get it stop staring, i knew it would happen and its cool, but you know, your there to look at the temple not mee!! i did however pick up some fab shoes, knocked the bugger down from 1200rs to 300 score!
So I don't really know what else to write today, other than I'm tired and its totally time for bed and a look out of balcony maybe with a sneaky chaai if the restaurant is open still! this hotel is lovely, wish i was staying longer but hey ho jaipur and elephants and tigers and taj mahals call
Oooh I do no what i wanna say, and i thnk i've already said it, but well, everyone keeps saying, oooh im so jealous, of you for being there, oooh yours so lucky to be there. yes i am lucky to be here, ive worked hard to save and afford to be here and will continue to work hard to pay of the debts i have accrued! but i am even luckier to be coming home to such amazing friends family and place to live. ok wolverhampton and birmingahm can be pretty lame, but we have it so good people! we have materesses, food at our disposal at any time of day, you know, we have it all, we're all the lucky ones!
Ok peace out till next time xxx
