Day 12
3rd January 2012
Jaipur

We decided to drive towards Jaipur Airport and have lunch there at some decent hotels so that we are near to the airport and safe. We are bitten by the Bangalore traffic bugs, so we will at least keep 4 hours buffer for the airport . We had a flight to catch by 19:00 hours!


On the way we saw Hawa Mahal

Sprited one and family flew back to Mumbai, and we flew back to Bangalore.

We were back in our homes past mid night.

Dumped the luggage and hit the bed. Next day we all stayed back at home and rested from a hectic travel.

Thus a travel to Rajasthan was done with Family and friends and gets down the memory lane.


The End
