Today, we had a tour of Jaipur. First, we saw the Hawa Mahal. Since ladies weren't allowed to be seen on on streets, they made a palace to see the special events or parades. It looked very beautiful from the front, but in the back it was just a plain orange wall. After that, we went to the Amber Fort. When we got there, we were waiting in a line to ride........ ELEPHANTS! I was really scared of going on the elephant. After a while, it was okay. But when the elephant stopped, he leaned to one side. Aqeel was so close to falling at the edge. One reason was because I was sliding and unintentionally pushing him further off the elephant. When we got off the elephant, we had a quick tour. Then, we saw the Water Mahal. It was made for the king for summer. When we got back into the car, we went to the Maharajas palace. Maharajas are kings of a certain religion. Maharajas where clothing that look like shiny dresses with baggy pants underneath. They were also setting up a wedding there. Soon, we left, had lunch, and relaxed at the hotel for the rest of the day.
Today, we went to the monkey temple. When we got there, we saw lots of monkeys sucking on Guava. We saw a monkey that jumped on someones shoulders! My family freaked out. Then, we went up the stairs. We had a look at what the Hindi religion was like. Then, we took pictures of monkeys and ourselves. Finally, we went all the way down the stairs and went got ready to go to Mumbai.
