This is what I'd call a very random assortment of pictures, Jaipur was the second place we went on our India-Nepal trip and I still wasn't quite used to shooting on the go. Some good pictures came out of it but a lot were lost thanks to a huuge smudge on my lense, which I didn't notice. I could edit it out of some pictures but it was massive and it caused me a lot of pain when editing. Buut I did get some decent pictures out of it, plus of course there's still a lot to write about. This first picture is the gate into Jaipur old city.
We arrived to Jaipur from Pushkar which if I recall wasn't too long a drive, we stopped for lunch in the middle so it was probably between four and six hours (which isn't long for India). You can see my previous travel post from Pushkar and Delhi here.
And then after a short tuk tuk tour and seeing some of Jaipur from a rooftop we stopped of at a garage for dinner. Yes a literal garage, all the cars were moved out of the way, the floor was hosed down and they put tables out for us all. It was pretty cool. While everyone else got chicken or paneer skewers, being the vegan I am my tour guide bought me a dosa and it was an enlightening experience. A pancake with potatoes in, what more could a carb addict want? Plus it came with dahl and this amazing chilli tomato stuff. I was in food heaven in this little garage. This was the best dosa I've had and I couldn't find one like it in the rest of my time in India. I am determined to have one that good again.
It was a huge complex with the fort and palace grounds in it. Including a rainy season and summer palace, plus space for the king and all of his official wives.
And that's it for the pictures of Jaipur. After the Amber fort we went out for someone on our tour's Birthday. Our tour guide arranged fireworks which were literally set of and left in a box on the road outside the restaurant we were eating on the roof of but that's India for you. I also have a video diary from Jaipur below which includes our super fancy hotel. So enjoy that. And this is from a India to Nepal tour by G Adventures which you can see here.
