Krish had been telling us that we would be staying at a "lodge" for the next 2 nights near the tiger preserve. Imagine our astonishment when we pulled in to a HUGE white palace owned by the royal family of India, descendants of the last maharaja. What a mind-boggling contrast to the abodes we have been seeing. This place is monumentally stunning and our room alone is a suite fit for a whole harem!
We opted to skip the late afternoon hike to an old fort in the forest. Those who went reported that it was beautiful, had outstanding views, and was teeming with monkeys, parrots, and other tropical wildlife.
We stayed here and rested (I have caught the cold going through our group) and last might we both had Ayurvedic massages at the poolside spa. It was hands- down the best massage I've ever had (D agrees), and we were slathered in the spiciest, most aromatic oils. Deluxe!
Soon I'll write about the food we've been eating, but enough for today!!
