Day 20 - Jodhpur

sunny 29 °C

Today after getting most of the sightseeing done on yesterday's walk around town. We are having a nice long breakfast come lunch on the rooftop looking at the Mehrangarh fort. The view gets more and more impressive each day.

After midday we are heading out on a walk back to the market place and then set a course from there. We decide to walk out into the back street and alleys and find out way out from the fort area.

After walking through a maze of cobbled streets we end up on a main road and outside a shopping mall. After going inside to realise that the building is practically vacant and we find a small coffee shop to get a nice ice coffee - craving real coffee a lot on this trio you don't know how much you miss the occasional cup when it's gone but the store Cafe Coffee Day has nice coffee.

After spending all afternoon walking around all afternoon we have made w few discoveries. We walk past our first McDonalds! The menu here only has vegetarian and chicken burgers so no Big Macs to be had in India - it's a cow thing.

You could get lost in the maze that is Jodhpur and we take some time finding out way back to the hotel but after a long afternoon walk we have some dinner at the hotel. The menu does not look fantastic here but the two dishes was order are amazing and the perfect end to a peaceful day.

Tomorrow is a long trip to Jaipur and a good sleep is needed.
