Our journey has nearly ended.  We took a five hour taxi ride from Jaisalmer to Jodphur, and now waiting in the airport to fly to Delhi and on to Dubai for a couple of days, then home.  Thank you everyone who kept up with our posts. You can’t believe our much we appreciated  your comments […]

Everybody loves a happy ending

Phalodi to Jaisalmer . We spend half an hour trying to find our way out of town, because the app is set to ‘select most complicated, most obstructed, least intuitive route possible.’ We drive and drive.  Interesting things probably happen but all we can think about is finishing. Our bodies are like the rickshaw, shutting […]

Going insane

By on September 19, 2013 in India with No Comments

Naguar to Phalodi The days are merging into one long dream. I feel like we’re in the desert (well technically we are in the desert) and there’s a mirage in the distance called the Finish Line.  We drive and drive but that mirage, our oasis of safety and comfort, stays as far away as it […]

Ajmer back to the middle of nowhere and on to Naguar . The cab driver last night was a godsend, if you overlook the 1,500 rupee charge. He made a call to someone who knew someone, who happened to be a rickshaw mechanic. A real one no less. The driver explained our problem and where […]

Killer monkey

Middle of nowhere to Ajmer . I’m mentally preparing myself to sleep in the rickshaw for the night, thinking it’s got to be more salubrious than some of the hotels we’ve stayed in, but first we make a last ditch effort to tell the taxi drivers where we are. Rick walks off into the darkness […]

Jaipur to middle of nowhere . Today was far and away Worst Day EVER. We left Jaipur stupidly saying that the last couple of days hadn’t seemed as adventurous. Should’ve known not to tempt fate. I am going to make this post boring and tedious to help share the pain of this boring and tedious […]

The Taj Ma-what?

Agra to Jaipur We’d driven all this way, it would be a shame not to see the Taj Mahal right? We didn’t have time to go in, and with our rickshaw with all our stuff in it it was a bit dangerous to leave it, but we thought we’d at least drive up and snap […]

Kanpur to Agra . We left the ripoff yes-no-wifi Citi Club Hotel and continued on countless miles of paved highway, which is getting a bit tedious, but the alternative is worse. . We stopped for breakfast at a tea shop to be stared at again, with me trying to unsuccessfullu sneak a use of my […]

Sarnath to Kanpur We awoke to the sound of monks doing martial arts and left Sarnath for Kanour. Not before stopping for more chai, delicious lentils, and sweets, all for 30 rupees ($0.50), served by friendly people who insisted I take a photo of their son, to be posted. . For some unfathomable reason we […]

Creepy Crawlies

Patna to Sarnath . We left Patna, our least favorite city so far, and the horrid Hotel Chanakya, probably to the relief of all involved. Our free lassi had leaked all over the rickshaw in the night so unfortunately we had to divest ourselves of that, in their men’s bathroom. Ha. . Getting out of […]
