Most hotels were clean and basic. The hotels at Udaipur had Jaiselmer had no air conditioning which was unacceptable. I was very uncomfortable with the heat at the Jaiselmer hotel. I did not like the New Park Hotel at Pushkar. The sheets were stained, I had a lassi with mold in it and the rice and lentil and bean dish was very badly cooked it was unpalatable. The home cooked meal with the Pushkar family was a delight and was the best meal I had all trip. The range of activities offered during this trip as spot on.
