Day 11 -- Udaipur

Today, we attended our cooking class. It was a lot of fun, and there were some other tourists there to talk to. The teacher was excellent, and despite a few power outages, we learned how to make a few of the local dishes we've been eating for the past few weeks. We'll see if we can duplicate them at home!

Some of our fellow students were from Australia and Europe, and as we had found before, most of the other travelers we encountered were touring for a month or more! That must be nice!

Later, we explored some fancy hotels and bought some artwork. Unfortunately, somebody had stolen $20 from Jon's travel wallet while we were out cooking. He brought it to the manager's attention, since some other articles in his bag had been moved around, but nothing really came of it. Luckily, it wasn't too much cash.

That night we went to a nearby rooftop for a Udaipur tradition: a screening of "Octopussy" which was filmed there back in the 80s! It was fun to watch and see the landmarks. I have to say that Udaipur was probably the best place we've visited in India!
