As promised, a round up of last night's antics:

First stop, a fancy bar for some amazing cocktails. Which yet again, Raghu paid for!! We all protested but he was having none of it. Jo introduced me to Caiprinha cocktails which are my new favourite! -Then onto a basement club which played the best music!! The only time Jo and I stopped dancing all night was when we went to the bar or the loo!! And we were in there until 3am so it was a lot of dancing...thank goodness we were wearing flats!!

Jo "sensibly" went to bed at this point. I thought it would be a good idea to stay awake and go up to a rooftop to have a few more drinks and some chips! I was seriously excited about the chips but was most disappointed to realise that chips here actually mean crisps!! Fail! Amazing night although getting in after 4am not so amazing when we were all meeting at 9am!!

Thankfully our sightseeing today mainly consisted of getting into a car, getting driven somewhere, getting out of the car, walking a tiny bit and taking some photos. Nice and lazy. We drove to the amber fort, the lake palace, a block printers, another palace (I can't remember the name) and the obervatory. The amber fort was beautiful. We walked up to the top, dodging the elephants on our way who were carrying other tourists up to the fort. The views were lovely! Then a brief stop to take photos of the lake palace followed by lunch!! Then onto a local block printers for a demonstration (Jo and I wanted to buy all the beautiful bedsheets)! And finally a walk around the quite surreal observatory. We ran out of energy after this so didn't make it into the other palace! But we saw the outside!!

This evening was amazing fun. We went to the cinema to see the big Bollywood film out at the moment called Student of the Year. Great fun made even more enjoyable by the beautiful men singing and dancing throughout! Then a cheeky KFC with everyone before an early night!
