India Trip Day 4 / Vintage Car Museum, Silver Workshop & Indian Wedding (Udaipur)

ウダイプールのホテルのボート乗り場でウダイプールのガイドさんが待っていてくださったので、さくっと打ち合わせをしました。予定ではこの日はホテル到着後夜までゆっくりするはずでしたが、ガイドさんは色々案内してくださる予定とのこと。相談の結果、ホテルにチエックインしてから夫が行ってみたいと言ったヴィンテージカーの博物館とシルバーのワークショップに行くことに。

When we arrived from Udaipur airport at the Lake Palace hotel’s pier, our guide in Udaipur was waiting for us, which was a surprise.  We thought our plan was to relax for the rest of the day as we weren’t arriving until about 3.00.  The guide told us that he was told we wanted to see a full half day tour!  Well, we really didn’t but my husband wanted to see the vintage car museum and a silver workshop that the guide told us about, so after checking in we met the guide again at the pier and were taken to these places.

ヴィンテージカー&クラッシックカーコレクション。写真は数枚しか撮りませんでしたが、何台くらいあったでしょうか、多分10台くらい?余り多くはないです。わたしは全然興味なし、ですが、夫はそれなりに面白そうでした。

This is the vintage and classic car museum.  I only took a few photos of some cars but I guess there were about 10 cars or so?  Not that many.  I have no interest but my husband seemed to have enjoyed it.

ただ、ここ、蚊だらけで。。。(涙)。蚊ではない他の虫かもしれませんが似たようなサイズの虫がそこら中に飛んでいて、気をつけないと口の中にも入りそうですし、とにかく気持ち悪くて泣きそうでした。夫は全然平気そうでしたけど。。。不思議。。。

The only thing was that the place was full of mosquitoes or something similar to mosquitoes, so many that I was worried I may swallow some of them.  I HATE insects so this was a hell for me!  My husband didn’t seem to mind and I didn’t want him to think I was being a baby so I tried not to start crying but I really hated it.  I cannot understand how my husband didn’t even seem to notice them.

インドに行くにあたって、ムンバイ以外は涼しいのであまり必要ないとは聞いていましたが念のために蚊対策のものは一応いくつか持って行っていました。でも、結局必要なくて使いませんでした。ただ、この場所と、もう1箇所、プシュカの市場の一部の場所だけ蚊だらけでした。

As it was quite cool everywhere except Mumbai I was told we don’t need to worry about mosquitoes, but I took some goods to keep us away from them.  We didn’t need them but there were 2 places we had a lot of them (or some insects that are about the same size as them) – one is this place and the other is a small area in the market in Pushkar.

ムンバイ以外はどこも、牛がいっぱいでした。

We did see a lot of cows in all the places we went to except in Mumbai.

そしてシルバーオーナメントのワークショップ。ガイドさんって必ずこういうところに連れて行きますよね。すごく良いところのような説明なので(わたしは行く気なしでしたが)夫がシルバーのボックスで良いのがあればほしいというので一応行きました。

Then we were taken to a silver ornament workshop.  All the guides try to take you to this sort of place and if it was up to me I would have declined but my husband wanted to buy a silver box if he sees what he likes.  These guides are very good at making these places sound good.

こういう木型の上にシルバーのシートを乗せて叩いて貼り付けて行くというものでした。他にもいくつかお部屋がありましたがわたしたちが欲しいと思うものはなかったので、さらっと見て終わり。特に無理押しはされなかったので、良かったです。

They put a sheet of silver on such a wooden mould and let it adhere to it.  There were a few rooms where people were working on various things but we didn’t see anything we wanted.  Thankfully they didn’t make it too uncomfortable for us to leave without buying anything.

途中で、この日も結婚式を見かけました。花婿さんが白い馬に乗って登場するのだそうです。白馬の王子?

We saw another wedding on our way.  The groom rides a decorated white horse.  A prince on a white horse?

3、40分で観光は終わって、あとはホテルでゆっくりしました。

I think we probably finished these sightseeing in 30 or 40 minutes, went back to the hotel and relaxed until dinner time.
