Jodhpur 8TH March
Well, sorry there has been an absence of blogs for the last
Pushkar proved to be everything and more than I had initially

I had NO idea why. It certainly wasn’t just because Mumbai was so busy and
crazy, noisy and smelly! Neither was it that I knew there was a beautiful Sacred
Lake which was truly sacred indeed. The lake is surrounded by powerful,

Number Eight: WiFi that works….for a decent length of time
Number Nine: Electricity that works
Number Ten: Being in a place where NO-ONE is spitting or
The water has now gone off and I’ve had to have a cold
shower using the water I bottled the day before yesterday just in case….Luckily
