HAPPY HOLI!!

06 March 2015

If there’s one thing I’m learning very quickly in India, it’s how to pee or sleep just about anywhere. I fell asleep pretty quick in my tent but awoke at 1am desperate for the toilet. It was dark and scary outside, so I attempted to wait, but by 1:40 I concluded that I could wait no longer, so crept out into the darkness to do my business. Mid-wee, a stray dog appeared and started sniffing my head!! I politely excused myself and returned to my tent, but I can only assume he was very impressed with my wee, as he followed me back and cried at not being allowed inside the tent. Finally, the clever thing found a compromise, and slept as close to me as possible while still remaining on the other side of the tent, creating a friendly dent for me to sleep next to. He then saw is as his duty to bark at every bird or breeze that happened by. Around 3:30am he disappeared for a moment and I thought finally sleep could come, but he returned shortly after having found a plastic bottle to loudly chew on for the remainder of the night!

As the following day was Holi festival, we had to be awake particularly early in the morning to beat the traffic. So as a result, I looked like this:

But was back on my camel 5:30 sharp as promised.

The moment we arrived back in Jaipur, we were greeted by this:
