Travel time: July 2004 - December 2007  |  by Nicole Schemionek

2 weeks to jaipur... the start...

... George and me decided to have two weeks off in Jaipur and Pushkar... and we are very excited... today we got up in the early morning at 5 and went by train to bombay. at 11 o'clock we've been here and we took a cap to our departure station and locked our luggage... and went off to town to have a nice cold beer. It is independance day today and everybody should celebrate... hmmm... not the indian people... independance day is dry day... and there is no drip of alcohol in india available... hmmm... ok... then we just have coffee and juice... our train to jaipur should go at 18:50 and we had plenty of time. we talked about going to elephanta island... but after george realised that she lost her wallet, we decided to have a nice afternoon at the police office... (it's not funny but it is getting worse... we spent our afternoon in there and like 8 policeofficers were taking the details and serving us tea... after that we checked our train again because there are some troubles with the trains these days. we found out that our train has a huge delay... and that the departure is at 5:10 monday morning... ok... so we had more time... we went to a cafe and we were reading our books... had dinner and then we checked out the cinema... we watched spiderman 2... at 0:15 we found another cafe and we had some more coffeine to keep us going and we were playing some cards.. now we are sitting at iway's 24 hrs internet cafe and trying to not getting bored too much... and we are doing quite well I think... ok... what shall I say. we reserved a nice hotel in jaipur and I think when we are getting there finally we deserved a nice place to sleep... if you wanna check it out: it's a dream... and we get picked up from the trainstation monday at 11 in the night... So finally we started our vacation with 18 hours bombay and 18 hours traindrive to jaipur... (hopefully)... let's see how everything is going...

have fun out there... and take care...
