We got an early start and arrived at our maharaja palace hotel mid-afternoon in time to enjoy the pool. This was a grand place, built in the 19th century and full of antiques. The rooms were older and well appointed and the air conditioning worked great. There was a nice restaurant and all of the walls, both in the public and privatre areas were hand painted with Indian and Arabic designs. Some of the gang joined Davey for street Tandoori chicken while the others dined indoors.
Our next stop was the Amber Fort. We stopped at the bottom to change from tuk-tuks top jeeps instead of climbing the steps or riding elephants.
This is a poster of the film. It was really a lot of fun and based on a true story.
