Time was marching on, so it was time to go as my overnight stay was Gajner Palace, another heritage hotel.

It was 30 minutes out of town, getting there just after 5pm / 17:00. There was no time to wander the village of Gajner by myself.

Not much time to explore the buildings and grounds before a non-existent sunset over the lake.

Told that dinner service started at 7.30pm / 19:30. On arrival it was effectively booked out with several large groups having reserved most of the inside tables. So I was asked if I would sit outside on the courtyard with the local group of dancers and musicians providing the entertainment for the dinner guests. Thankfully my dinner didn’t take that long to arrive as it quickly became colder but thankfully I was dressed for it.

Dinner = Laal Maans - Regional Rajasthan preparation of mutton in a spiced red curry 650 rupees / NZ$13.50 / US$9.10.
Steamed jeera rice - Tomato lemon peas or dried fresh fruit 350 rupees / NZ$24.30 / US$16.80.
Naan bread 110 rupees / NZ$2.30 / US$1.60.
Plus GST and a tip came to 1,200 rupees / NZ$25 / US$16.90.

The Gajner Palace certainly had the best room set up on the trip – felt like a mini apartment. Pity that it was for just one night.

A knock on the door and a real nice surprise - 2 hot water bottles.
