Udaipur, its former nickname - the white city (although now more of a mix of yellow and blue homes), is only a couple hours away from Chittaugarh. A more laid back and maybe more touristy city than other places we've visited, but somehow still retaining its charm. Udaipur is probably one of the most beautiful places we've visited so far in India, with the huge lake Pichola complete with former pal... Read Full Entry

Squirrels in Jagdish Temple...
I loved seeing the little guys in your temple photos – I spent so much time watching them that the locals came over to make sure everything was ‘ok’! I was squirming reading about P’s handshake issue…I try not to be rude to touts etc, but I struggled to stay civil when they tried to shake hands with me. It wasn’t until after our Indian trip that a friend told me that she did ‘namaste hands’ when they tried it on her… I so wish I had thought of that too! :)

Squirrels in Jagdish temple
What a great idea I also wish I would have thought of that too instead of being hand locked with that guy. I will certainly try that next time as would love to go to the north of India. Not on this trip though. Yes we also spent time admiring the squirrels busy at work. Cute little fellas they were.

Love this photo!
The women look so beautiful and colorful in their saris! So glad you got a good guide this time and bought great clothes without a hassle! But yikes, that 'fortune-teller' story was pretty scary. Ren's comment on the 'namaste hands' was brilliant. And I guess there were more tourists here because it was so gorgeous and had boat rides, a cable car and lots of rooftops. Lovely images!

I do miss seeing these women impeccably dressed in their colourful saris, it simply had us in awe. Saying this, we feel the same at the minute. We are in Cartagena, Colombia and we just love the colour here. Yes I agree, understandably sooner or later these picturesque places start attracting people. Apart from a little hassle (i.e. the gripping fortune teller) we still enjoyed the whole experience of being in Udaipur.

Protection from the chaos and the sun

Different personalities
Each town has something new to offer, a different pace and personality. That is what makes traveling so wonderful as you never know what is coming next. Even though your cooking class was demonstration only it sounds like a great option. The people and to animals are a recurring theme and we understand. Sorry the rains prevented the harbor cruise but you found all kinds of things to keep you busy.

Protection from the chaos and the sun

Different personalities
They were very different. Do we mention the animals alot? Guess it really came as a surprise to us seeing so many on the streets of cities and built up towns. Always had us laughing. We loved India and it really was soo different to anywhere we had travelled to so far. Being weary of some friendly strangers was a shame but I guess in these areas known for tourists you are bound to get some characters trying to part you with your cash. Loved Jaisalmer especially our evening was really nice.
