A weekend in Jaipur

This weekend just gone, Tania, myself & Fran went up to Jaipur – the capital of Rajasthan. The hotel we stayed at had a bit of the "Marigold Hotel" feel about it, but it only added to the experience.

A great time was had by all & we contributed to the economy in a big way (as one does).
