India Trip Day 8: 16km Route March

After all that unnecessary drama from the day before, I’ve decided that this day I will not engage in any Tuk-tuks or rides that will ‘alter’ my itinerary for that day. Walking it is!

For day 8, I went to the city centre of Jaipur, known as the Pink city. There were several things to do, particularly the Pink city, Hawa Mahal and Albert Hall Museum.

Jaipur is also famously known for its Lassi. The place was recommended by Big Hyung during my Jaisalmer trip! He told me it’s a must-try and it really did not disappoint!

Lassi Wala!

After exploring these several places, I got back to my hostel and rest until my next train to my next city, Agra. At this point, my knee is killing me. And, all I wanted was just food and lots of plain water hahaha!

It gets quite surreal; knowing the fact that I’ve been out here for such a long time alone and I could really get used to it! But, good things do come to an end, and fun times runs really quickly..
