Everybody has to work hard in India - even these little donkeys (why do we feel so sad for them while tending to forget about the many people here who are overloaded with work too??).
And this was the old Udaipur equivalent of my Ilve oven....... (baking cookies today)
We went out to dinner to celebrate our last night together as a group of seven - to the gorgeous and impeccable Imperial Hotel, close to Connaught Place. The Imperial Hotel opened in 1931 as New Delhi's first luxury hotel - and it still retains its perfectly groomed air of colonial grandeur. I have heard a rumour that this is the the hotel favoured by Ms Cath T (of Topshop fame) when she is on business in New Delhi. Apparently this was the hotel where Nehru, Gandhi, Ali Jinnah and Lord Mountbatten met to discuss the Partition of India and the birth of Pakistan.
We dined in the more casual Daniell's Tavern but it was still starched white service and beautifully prepared food.
