January 14, 2020 : A Royal Welcome in Rajpipla
We depart the hotel very early this morning for a short flight to Vadodara in the state of Gujarat. From there we drive to the Royal City of Rajpipla where we are welcomed to the Maharaja’s Palace (our home for the coming two nights) by His Royal Highness, Crown Prince Manvendra, and his American-born husband DeAndre.
We return to the Palace for dinner with the Prince – with excellent food prepared by DeAndre. After dinner most of us collapse into a coma brought on by a surfeit of wonderful food at the end of a long and busy day!
