Our next stop to the west was Jaipur, the famed Pink City. Known for its textiles, thriving jewelry industry, and its fast growing population of expats. The group visited on of the last remaining traditional block printing fabric shops, as well as India’s #2 tourist attraction the Amber Fort where a few of our participants got to ride an elephant up the long steep “driveway.”

Pushkar, is another small town, off the normal sight-seeing routes. A tiny lake ringed by temples, it’s home to one of the only Brahma Temples in all of India. Bustling with activity, as the days we were there was the culmination of Navaratri, Indian New year. And when in Pushkar, a sunset camel ride into the desert is always in order.

From the holy lake city of Pushkar, to the City of Lakes Udaipur, or the Venice of the East was our next stop. Visits to the City Palace, where Shambhu had a chat with an international rug dealer from Kashmir. The group watched a cultural program showcasing many of the traditional dances and songs or Rajasthan. And another boat ride at sunset to round out the days.

More to come,
