Yesterday we were lucky enough to stay in an old Mogul fort- Kishanghar. We were in a hotel that was in the converted palace- a beautiful spot with a view over the lake of a fort in the lake surounded by water. It was a a splended, peaceful setting.
I was on the van again today to Pushkar – a destination city for Pilgrims who are worshipping Brahma. Temples everywhere – along with lots of scams to say prayers in exchange for money. I wandered around the city to some temples and there was a bizarre so I picked up a new shirt to ride in to replace the goodwill shirt I brought that started to disintegrate immediately.
Went to the pharmacy today and picked up some cough syrup and antibiotics – over the counter and dirt cheap. Hopefully it will knock this out. But don’t worry, I’m OK. I’m taking care of myself, have the long view on biking – I’m here for 2 months and when this is over I’ll have lots of saddle time.
