Today we could finally find out the results of the U.S. election, and even then not until 11:00 AM when I called my friend Linda in California on my cell phone and got the news that Obama easily won the election. We were surprisingly wound up about it, and relaxed considerably after we had the news.
That morning, we went to see a famous minaret. We next walked in the flower market where people were selling fresh flowers, and making them into garlands and other arrangement.
The next stop was the airport - yuck, any airport is. D.P checked us and our luggage in for us, a nice treat, and then we had a mediocre lunch at the airport, and finally boarded our late plane for Udaipur.
After touching down in Udaipur, southwest of New Delhi, we had about a half-hour drive to our very elegant hotel, the Udiavillas, on a lake. There was a very short break, and then we drove and walked to a home and B&B run by an interesting couple. We were exhausted, but had to tour the little Hindu temple outside and then had drinks before having a cooking class on the philosophy of Indian cooking and a demonstration in the kitchen. By the time we ate, it was about 8:30 and the food was a bit too spicy for us. After a tour of the B&B, we finally had a bit of a walk in the dark to our bus and then back to hotel. This was way too long a day for us!
