…..So after the peaceful day at Bhangarh we headed to Jaipur for a night stay. We quickly sped to Polo Victory area where most of the hotels and lodges are located. After sufficient negotiation with Receptionist at various places we finally settled down at  Pink City Guest House which gave us an A/C room for 4  with Attached facilities at INR 800. We were determined not to spend a penny more than what is minimum required to spend in accommodation and things like that. They also gave our driver a small room at the cost of INR 100. He slept like a kumbhkaran after a long sleepless and continuous drive from Lucknow.

There needs to be a mention of what we had an amazing fun laughing, literally ROFLing  and watching Dinesh Karthik‘s 3 sixes in a row and then a sudden and awkward stumped out dismissal.I was desperately trying to prove the talent of this young batsman- wicket keeper and even got it almost approved when he had hit 3 sixes. But that was not my day when he got out in the most silly way one can. I don’t want to say anything more .. you can witness the fool yourself !

Beware … you are going to watch something which can lead to uncontrollable laugh riots which may lead you to death . I hereby, take no responsibility of any kind of mis-happening in any case.

Dinesh Kartik Awesome ! Slide down directly to 2: 30

We almost died the last night laughing, rolling and falling from the bed . Never would i attempt to bet so high on Dinesh, the awesome again. that’s for sure !

Anyways, talking about our trip we could not avoid paying a visit to Amer Quila also , because of the extra time we had. Although it was never in our plan to visit such place but we thought to reconsider it because we knew nobody among us will gonna come this far again. To our amazement, specially mine who had always seen Amber in the day light, the fort looked splendid in the night with a beautiful and pleasant light show spreading upon its huge walls.

Day 2 : So the next day we headed  for the place I have always been dreaming about for the last 4 years. The Sambhar Lake.  I always get mesmerized thinking about the vast plains the site offers us to walk, run, drive as fast as you can, listen to your favourite song, just lie down and think or  do whatever you want. The place is a huge piece of land with nothing but just salt. An amazing view of Sambhar Salt plains  awaits you when you go 80 kms after taking a right turn under the flyover at Dudu on Jaipur- Ajmer Highway. This place won’t ever disappoint you . Never !!

Delighted ...we were !

Phew…!!

It was nevertheless , one hell of a day i always thought of spending at place like Sambhar . Next time i plan to go out there on my own vehicle so that i can also do some test drive as they show in every car advertisement on TV.

At last while clicking all the beautiful pics around the lake … our dear pathak ji came up with some splendid snaps of silhoutte on the railways tracks . I love them so much !

and we called it a day while turning our Indica again on smooth roads of Ajmer Highway. Meanwhile, we had our dinner on some dhabha which was full of local spices in the curry we had, Ker Sangri and Sev Tamatar.
