Albert and family with Tinku, July / August 2011

We’re back and well from a tough and exhausting trip through Rajasthan. In fact, we’re still recovering … but oh, oh, what a beautiful country it is, and how glad we are none of us has got really sick, even while we were with a group of five. We’ve been very careful with what we ate.

And yes, Tinku. He was the best driver we could have imagined. Tinku was relaxed, polite, obliging and fully at our service. I still need to get used to that attitude (I like to discuss plans), but he was available and ready to drive at all times.

While on the road, he also acted as our guide. He did this very pleasantly and shared the things he knew throughout the day. We’ve also met yelling drivers, and chauffeurs driving very fast and dangerous. Tinku, however, kept his composure.

In short: a fantastic trip and a well organised taxi with driver.
