We met up with Gauri's friend Anuradha, and she will be traveling with us to Jaipur today, which is the capital of Rajasthan. Jaipur is nicknamed "The Pink City." Downtown Jaipur's streets are lined with very deep pink color buildings. This is from the clay/stucco mixture that was used to build them, and the reason for the nickname.
We took an airline called "Spicejet" from Pune to Jaipur. Upon arrival, our driver met up with us, he would be responsible for taking us to Pushkar, Ajmer, and Jaipur during our visit. Our first night we will be going to Pushkar, which is about 2 hours, but will take us 3 hours because of the back roads. Before leaving Jairpur we managed to see a couple of Palaces.
In the morning we woke, and walked around for a few hours. They had the most awesome patch work, quilts, and fabric in this area (Better than any other area we would go to).
While in Rajasthan (The Desert Region of India) it rained every day, this was to be expected as we were there during the Monsoon season. But the streets would turn into mini streams, just washing everything from the road down to the lowest point. Included in this stream was sandals, clothes, sticks, random plastic pieces, a lot of garbage, and some animal feces. They say in India to always make sure you to look down when you walk - This is so true!
Below are some pictures from the Pushkar Palace.
