Today we were supposed to be going to see a couple of temples, but actually we spent the morning and most of the day watching the India v Australia World Cup Cricket Final. It was amazing watching a game which is so beloved here with actual Indian people. It was a shame they lost, but it was fun all the same.
We then just chilled out in the serene surroundings of the hotel for the rest of the day, eventually heading out for some dinner. Guess what we had? Yep - more daal! It's just so tasty, and Ringo wasn't eating meat that week due to a religious festival, so I was happy with the same food. One of the best things about having a local guide is learning the local culture, and history. I am intrigued and fascinated with the Hindu religion, so hear about what it all means and where it all came from from an actual person, rather than books of the internet was amazing! I could listen to his stories all day! It was so nice to be so relaxed and chilled out before what I knew would be a hectic couple of weeks of travelling. I wanted to make the most of the down time, and actually, there isn't really a whole lot to do there. That's why it's the perfect place for a retreat!
