More Jaipur.

India is special in that, one doesn’t have to visit a zoo to see animals and birds. For some tourists like my husband, that in itself is a big attraction. He made a list of life he saw on city streets. He saw humans, cats, cobras, monkeys, horses, cows, dogs, peacocks, donkeys, asses, big rats, small rats, buffaloes, squirrels, elephants, camels, bulls, horses, regular goats, mountain goats, pigs, crows, doves, pigeons, parrots. 

Anyway, onwards to some more pictures from Jaipur. 

Your country doesn’t have elephants strolling down the streets? How boring. I would advise the elephants to go easy with the make up though. Bit much for day wear, don’t you think?

Far from being an abandoned building, this is actually a part of a very busy shopping street   called Johari Bazar.

Fresh sugarcane juice. Squeeze lemon, sprinkle kala namak. Summer in a cup. Sometimes also diarrhoea in a cup. 

Drink lassi. Smash clay cup after use. You happy. Earth happy. 

Jal Mahal (Water palace) Once an oasis in the desert. Now closed to tourists but wedding venue to rich and willing to spend.

Front of Hawa Mahal. Poor phone picture, but I dodged motorcycle man, tricycle man and a monkey running with a melon to take this picture. So.

    I would LOVE to see elephants and monkeys in the streets of DK, maybe that would stir up the danish smugness a little bit!
    And thanks for letting us read about your native country, always of interest to hear about my fellow beings background. :-)

  3. Spot on with this write-up, I honestly think this sie needs a lot more attention.

    I’ll probably be returning to read through more, thanks for the information!

  4. Ya hice notar a mis amiigos sobre la manera en que ustedes logran captar eel
    sentido de estos temas que me parece no era fácil de descubrir; o al menos
    logran salirse dell molde gracias a su amplio trabajo investigativo y a otros punjtos qque me parecen importantes
    pero que comentaré en otra ocasión. Escribir y publicar sobre marketing en buscadores, google y bing me parece que puede hhacerse de la forma en que ustedes lo han concebido.
    Muy amables.
