I have seen so little of the wonderful country that is India
A country so diverse, and full of contradiction and colur
I think the its the colours in India that stay with me as the most remarkable memories.
Join me as I reflect on the my small taste of India during the next few posts
Starting with Jaipur, the pink city, the capital Rajasthan
The colourful chalk drawings on the elephants in the streets
The ocre and pink tinged buildings that lend the city its name
And the amazing palaces, the Water Palace (top of page)
The amazing Wind Palace
The Maharaja (or City) Palace where the Maharaja still resides
I was most impressed though by the Yellow Fort.
Especially is you take the elephant ride to the main entry to the palace.
Then while winding through the rooms and alleyways of the Palace
There are special treats awaiting
Like snake charmers
With such a burst of colour
Of course a trip to Jaipur would not be complete without a Rajisthani feast – Vegetarian of course
A meal fit for the Maharaj!
