My holiday in: India
Kiran Moodley, aged 16
Saturday 03 May 2008
WHAT I LIKED
Thirty of us from England went to Delhi and Jaipur for a friend's birthday. It was a really memorable and life-changing experience. I loved the noises, frantic traffic and maze of people that litter the streets of Jaipur, especially around Badi Chaupar. Udaipur is just gorgeous and the best part of the holiday was our friend's spectacular night-time party in the gardens of the Hotel Narain Niwas Palace in Jaipur.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
Arriving back at Delhi train station from Agra at 10.30pm, only to find that the taxi we thought was coming wasn't. We were constantly bugged by other taxi drivers and random followers.
WHAT I SAW
Elephants lining up with cars in Jaipur, along with the breathtaking Amber Fort, and the staggering old world of Old Delhi, with the maze of alleys.
WHAT I ATE
While in Agra I discovered a delicious dish that would become my favourite – butter chicken.
WHAT I BOUGHT
My favourite shop was FabIndia in Delhi, where I bought my Indian gear.
WOULD I GO BACK?
Of course! FabIndia is missing its best customer.
