Not a great start to our mini-tour of Rajasthan. We had been promised a recent 9-seater van by Emma Horn Travel (by Emma herself and by Moumita) but the thing that arrived was old and it seemed the driver did not speak English very well. We reluctantly set off down the road by after just a couple of kilometers, it was obvious that the bus really was terrible and that the driver really didn't speak English. Back we went to the hotel and after an hour of heated telephone calls, the best they could come up with was to provide 2 Toyota Innova MVPs down to Puskar when we would be met the following day by a "good" van which was being driven up to us from Udaipur!
Because of all the problems getting a decent van, we arrived in at our hotel The Aarum Baag later than we hoped but we still had time to drive the 8km down to Pushkar town and spend a very nice hour in a lakeside hotel overlooking the palaces and ghats
Do have a look at the Aarum Baag link; it's a totally bizarre place but we all had a very good stay
The drive from Jaipur to Pushkar was completely uninspiring, pretty much all the way on a very good motorway
