Playing the tourist in Jaipur

We left the hotel early today for a day of sightseeing, shopping and fun. We took a taxi through the streets of Jaipur (another harrowing experience because not only do we have to dodge other cars we have to dodge stray dogs, horses, camels and elephants too). We went up to an ancient fort and looked around, it was truly magnificant. After looking around that fort we went to another fort where the kings of Jaipur would house their wives (one had 8 at a time, that must have been interesting). I will post some pictures of our travels. After resting at the hotel for a few hours, we set off again for a shopping extravaganza. We shopped in the old section of the city and had a great time and found some great things for great prices. Tomorrow we're off to church in the morning then take a 6 hour bus ride back to New Dehli where we will wait around until we fly out at 3:30 am. Then we're off to Hong Kong for one more night and then back home on Tuesday afternoon. We will actually land at LAX 2 hours before we leave; you've gotta love the international date line.
I'll try to post again once we get to Hong Kong, tomorrow will be too crazy, Lord willing.
