And God saw that the gin was very good and God said “let there be tonic” and there was Gin and Tonic. Elizabeth Windsor, ‘Gin o’clock’.

Feeling kinda spangled but happy on my last evening here in Jaipur. I’m getting used to the three week sensory overload package where I suddenly realise ‘it’s over’ no more can do. Palleeese. I’ve retreated back to my hotel to fall gratefully upon my time honoured Jaipur unit – a large G&T, I told Abbu my rickshaw driver I was feeling tired and ancient tonight, he said, ‘Don’t worry Boss, old is gold, and gold is very expensive!’. Cheers Abbu.. Tomorrow morning I’m heading off to Kerala for 2 weeks  R&R, I couldn’t be more ready.  I’ve never been here in the Monsoon before, it’s been challenging at times in the humidity, but it’s been great to have the factory to myself and get ahead of the queue for production. The samples are looking FAB, I’ll be bringing them back to London. Take a look at my last few weeks of Jaipur activity below.

I’ve fallen in love with elephants since visiting Jaipur but still haven’t ridden one yet.. any more pics/info you want for your class let me know will happily oblige. I love the idea of the kids seeing them, how about I write them a message in the sand on the beach here?
