Jaipur: More Sights & Sounds


Jaipur is intoxicating. It stirred the romantic side of me, that I knew only existed when I watch what's called chick flicks. It was frustrating too, the traffic inside the Pink City can rival those of the big metropolis. It was however an experience of a lifetime, and a fabulous trip.

Here are an assortment of what I've seen and heard and experienced in this beautiful Rajasthan State.

Met the hotel restaurant's chef. He made good food.

The restaurant had dinner with a show on a daily basis featuring traditional Rajasthani song and dance.

  1. As usual the shots are all awesome, that first one is splendid indeed! I remember one blogger here from UK has a hospital in Jaipur, i think it is Charlotte, another very good photographer. Did you notice that as soon as the driver touches his stirring wheel, he will immediately blow the horn! And everybody does the same!
