Travels in India – Day 5

19th September 2010

The day was spent the day site seeing in Jaipur.  Saw Amber Fort with its wide vistas, elephants, snake charmers and other assorted life forms.

Then we took a helter-skelter bicycle ride through the streets before visiting the Jantar Mantar observatory, City Palace Museum, ending with a trip to a textile factory.

The city is a blend of striking historic architecture and modern urban India.  Both seem to fit together remarkably well.  Enjoyed a spicy evening meal and witness a wedding celebration in the grounds of the hotel opposite from the bar at the top of our hotel, beside the rooftop swimming pool, before retiring early to write blog before bed.
