Meat and beer and videos - Happy days

Early start for the drive from Jaipur to Agra
I said good bye to the family this morning. The hospitality was fantastic, I was looked after so well.
On our journey to Agra we stopped on the way to see one of the oldest and largest stepwells. Built during the 8th 9th century.
As you can see the 2 days off the beer has done me well!
An other example of awesome design and build.
On the way out I saw was this guy throwing a pot - Now this is quite a unique way of getting the wheel spinning:
Not quite your green and pleasant cricket ground as we love in UK
60% of Rajasthan is desert, 20% is mountains and the rest is agricultural land - the "green bits". We were travailed through the "green bits" on our way to Agra. The dress was subtlety changing, more yellows (what would I know). But it was getting poorer and less clean. (if that is possible).
However, when we started travailing through Uttar Pradesh (the next Province east of Rajasthan) the roads got worse and it definitely got scruffier.
Agra was no exception:
Not a lot to say about this. Next time
On the way back from the Taj Mahal I had a bit of a spat with the rickshaw rider - He said it was 100 rupees there and back. When we returned he wanted 200 rupees 100 each way - I was arguing over £1 - But it is the principle. I gave him 100 rupees and told him that was that. My driver said something to him and off he went.
Then off out for dinner - Meat and a beer for for 2 day.
