29th Oct - We took SpiceJet flight to Jaipur but unfortunately could not make it within time due to technical problems and traffic congestion we were made to wait for 3 hrs inside flight. We reached around 22:00 to our pre-booked Hotel Madhuban by prepaid taxi. On reaching hotel driver says "kya bekar hotel liya hain sir"....ughh. Lump in my throat as all booking was done by me. It was a laborious, monotonous job going through website after website, jotting down details regarding price. With heavy heart went in but found everything as per internet photos only. We asked for next day car-hire for Shekhawati daytrip which they arranged. 30th Oct - Morning 7.00am nice, clean amby was provided to us and we started our day trip towards withering Land of kuber. On way we had hot tasty parantha idly as breakfast from Dhabba. It takes 3hrs to reach that region.  On way after talking to our cab driver we made our circuit starting from towns like Fatehpur, Mandawa, Churi-Ajithgarh, Dund…

Another Move

A few more week we will move from our current address; this time within Bangalore.  So compared to last moves it is going to be a very small one.  In 2003, we crossed Atlantic (California to Paris), in 2006 we crossed Indian ocean (Paris to Mumbai) and in 2008 we moved within India (Mumbai to Bangalore). Now this is just 20 Km move within Bangalore city. The painters from Asian Paint Home Solutions are doing the paint job and they are supposed to finish by 25th November.  The color scheme is going to be primarily white with little variant on one major wall. Hope all things works out as planned. We just had a wonderful week long break in Rajasthan during diwali; Pamela is working on the  travelogue. We are posting the pictures as we finish writing the details.
