Trapped in Pushkar

This seems to happen every once in a while.

I'm trapped, or at least, I can't leave.

I've been chilling out in Pushkar for the past few days, and really haven't seen much (i.e. any of the "to do" items in the guide-book). I've spent my time wandering through the market, relaxing by the side of the lake, and slowly taking it all in.

The problem lies here: I'm lazy. I've promised certain people that I'll buy clothes for them in India. Pushkar is a great place to do this, due to all of the hippies who come through/settle here (the tailors know exactly what kind of clothes to make for us). However, I really really hate clothes shopping, with a passion, and so I keep putting it off.

I know that I have to see the main temples in town, do all the guidebook things, go shopping and then send a bunch of clothes back to the US - however, until I actually do it, I can't leave Pushkar.

Drat.

With any luck, i'll find the willpower in a day or two. The clock is a tickin, and
so at some point, I need to move on.

But it really is nice here... so why rush?
