The Pink City Of Jaipur Has Tough Acts To Follow

by | Jul 17, 2010 | India, Summer 2010: Southeast Asia & India | 1 comment

It’s hard to top Amritsar and Varanasi, which is what I’m struggling with while I’m residing in the Pink City of Jaipur. Today I saw the impressive Amber Fort, City Palace, Hawa Majal, and went shopping along Jalahar Bazaar, but all the wonder and bewilderment I experienced in Varanasi and Amritsar was hard to come by.

No pictures because the internet is too slow. But tonight I’ll be taking and overnight bus to Jodhpur where I believe I will have better luck at a fast internet cafe after I explore Mehrangarh Fort by the Blue City.

My Hindi-speaking friends will appreciate this:

“Is ka dam kyaa hai?” “Paka? Yeh bahot bhaot mahegaa hai!” “Is kadam kam keejiye?” “naheeng naheeng!” “hain hain, muhje kuch hindi ati ii…from assam.” “TK TK.” “naheeng, bahot mahegaa hai!” (repeat)
