Day 8 in India was a quiet one.

We spent the early morning sleeping in, followed by an extra heart breakfast and more shopping. We LOVE buying very unique things you can't find anywhere else. Plus, we love really tacky/ugly items! Ha

In the afternoon we flew from Udaipur to Jaipur. And in the evening, we had THE MOST DELICIOUS Christmas Eve dinner we've had in years!

All is so good!!!

We send you lots of love!!!!

Yet another magnificent day in magical India!

On day 6 of our travels through this majestic country, we fully explored the quaint lake town of Udaipur.

We are so blessed to be here. We are so blessed! And equally fortunate to have tour guides with us who are so knowledgeable. We don't just love seeing these beautiful places, but we also love LEARNING about their history and that of its people.

Today, we took in the royal palace of Udaipur, built centuries ago, which is now a museum but still houses the royal family of this region - even though they don't have any governing powers.

It was real nice to be a king back in the olden days! Multiple wives, multiple concubines, pimp palaces and more!

We also spent a good chunk of the day going to two of the local bazaars and buying LOTS - from clothes to hats to statues and more! We have been in shopping heaven!

And, we wrapped up our beautiful day by going for a sunset cruise around the main lake.

Lovely! Just so lovely!

India Is Smiling

India is everything and more we hoped it would be!!!

Day 5 in our adventures across this magical and majestic country saw us go from Jodhpur to Udaipur - with a stop in Ranakpur in between.

The Chaumukha temple in Ranakpur is regarded as the most beautiful of all the Jain temples in India. And we are sooo glad we were able to see it!

What a stunning complex!

Built in 1439, it was truly impressive to walk around the 29 halls and see all of the hand-carved creations. So beautiful!

After that, we had lunch at lovely Maharani Bagh Orchard, a 19th century retreat set in a mango grove, owned by a maharani of Jodhpur.

And, finally, we made our way to Udipur, where we took a tour and had dinner in the legendary Lake Palace. Built in the 1700s, it used to be the home of royalty. It has since been used in the 007 film Octopussy and Brad & Angelina even stayed there a few years ago.

We can't stress how enamored we are with this whole experience! And the people of India are truly so lovely. So warm. So happy!

So many smiles!

Despite any hardships, the people of India are not hardened!
