May 4th: Visiting the Royal City Palace of Udaipur

May the 4th be with you! Happy International Star Wars Day!

Today we visited the Royal City Palace of Udaipur. It is the second largest palace in India and is filled with beautiful designs, windows and views of the lake. Udaipur, also known as the Venice of the East, is a city with two lakes and a royal palace where the royal family still lives.

Later in the day we rode tuktuk which is 3 wheeled vehicle-half motorcycle, half smart car. We weaved around cows, stray dogs, pedestrians, cars, donkeys, horses and anything you can imagine - all sharing a 3 metre wide street.

We were all exhausted by the end of the day and happy to finally sleep at around 8pm. As we fell asleep we could hear the echoing sound of prayers from a nearby mosque.
