On The Road Again In Rajasthan

I’m now in Jaipur, the fabled “pink city” through truth be told it’s more the orange and brown city. I guess the later just does’t seem as romantic. Pushkar was underwhelming, not so much because of the whole “Goa-In-The-Desert” thing but because I came down with a cold and spent the better part of two […]

Pushkar was underwhelming, not so much because of the whole “Goa-In-The-Desert” thing but because I came down with a cold and spent the better part of two days trying to sleep it off. I now have a “lost weekend in Pushkar” story which I relentlessly (and fictionally) embellish over the years until it becomes interesting enough to tell, The Road Less Travelled style.”

Panchwar Ghar I do remember more clearly, despite hurting my head pretty badly. I stayed in the cannon turret of a 350 year old fort and despite numerous warnings to “mind my head” I managed to nearly knock myself out on a low staircase.

Amazing place with a quaint village nearby, all set in picturesque and productive farmland. I could have easily stayed a lot longer there.

My interest was grabbed on your first image because I wanted to see the out of focus girl in the back ground behind the man leading the two camels. Was she a pauper begging or was she actually with the man in front? She looks one legged until you look closer and see she is leaning on a stick and you can trace her second leg being tucked behind her straight leg.

It is a shame you had to waste time whilst away, it always seems a waste to be poorly. My mind would have traveled whilst my body could not though, I would have been thinking about what it is like for the people there when they are poorly, do they get the care others get?

I have so many more thoughts from your pictures and yet others see no value in pictures or in lives of people they don’t know. I do not understand those people.
