Dear Raju,

We are back home, trying to adapt to the european rythm.

We had an excellent trip and really thank you for the fantastic organization.

The hotels were all very well chosen. We did not stay in the Desert Resort as we were the only visitors. Would have loved to stay there, a next time maybe, but it was obvious to regroup everyone in the Castle. The
Castle had its advantages too, easy to go for a stroll in town and we had an excellent dinner on the roof.

The hotel in Pushkar was very quiet, the ones downtown are probably very noisy, although the sister hotel at the Pushkar lake must have a very nice view.

Pal Haveli was located very well, and seeing the fact we were a bit sick then, it was very easy to go for a walk around the market. The people were also very helpful seeing the fact we were not feeling that well and the
rooftop restaurant was just beautiful, the view alone was worth being there.

The hotel in Udaipur was supreme, we could even choose our room, well that's the advantage to travel during low season . The food was also excellent. We had a very good guide and enjoyed the boat trip.

When arriving in Bundi, we did not really know what too expect. At first sight, we thought this would not go smoothly. The younger brother of the owner was also very nervous, but all turned out very well, and the dinner
was marvelous. We could have stayed another night to explore Bundi a bit more, as we had spend some time along the road in Chittorgarh and did not have that much time left in Bundi. People in the town of Bundi
were also very nice.

The organization at Ranthambore was super. And on top of that we had beautiful tiger sights. We did not understand the bill at Ranthambhore Safari Lodge, it seemed to have a lot of taxes they could not really explain.
But now we understood what happened. Everything we ordered in the dining room was seen as 'room service' and an extra 5% was charged on top of the bill, except for the buffet. We did not get room service, so the
'ser charge' as they call it, was not correct. If we had know the system, we would have adapted the way of tipping. But on the other hand, we must say that the people were very helpful. The A/C did not work correctly
and stopped regularly, so they replaced the A/C in our room. Compared to 'Ankur Resort' we stayed in last year, this lodge was much better.

Jaipur was also very well organized and a good hotel, very nice. It was a quiet location and we had more than what we needed. The guide was also very good and spoke excellent english.

We were also very happy to meet you in person and have to thank you for the nice dinner.

On our way to Agra, around Fatehpur Sikri, the road was closed and had to do a detour, driving thru little roads. Bhawani was a bit nervous as he did not find a place to pay the taxes to enter the U.P., even the police
could not really help, but we enjoyed the scenery.

We were just in Agra to visit the Taj. The hotel was ok, but nothing special. The Taj Mahal stays of course one of the most beautiful things in the world, well that's my impression. We also asked Bhawani to join us to
the Taj Mahal, it was not easy and had to ask this many times in advance. It is probably against the culture, against the rules. But seeing the fact we had nothing in the car, all was in the hotel, and we had been in the
Taj Mahal the year before, we knew where to look, we thought it would be nice if he could join us. He seemed a bit uncomfortable but also looked very happy. We were happy too. We wanted him to join as a kind of
thank you for the excellent driving and nice time we had together. We felt very comfortable and safe, which is important. (I had a very bad car accident last Summer, and escaped by miracle when a truck lost control,
flipped on its side, fell on my car when driving next to the truck, and only the drivers seat was protected, the rest of the car was all folded together. No one really understood how i got from under the truck with a few
scratches. I believe i still have a mission and see things different than before).

Like last year, we will send some pictures for Bhawani later in July or August. We will send it to your address, so we're sure it will arrive safely.

Raju, thanks again for everything. I recommended your services to some colleagues, hopefully they'll find their way to India too.

All the best and we're looking forward visiting some part of India again. We're not too sure when or what, but we will certainly come back.

Best regards and a very nice day,

Caroline and Marc
