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.
