Jaipur is a crazy city that is even more
overwhelming than Mumbai (yes, this is the truth).
Jaipur is known as the Pink City, though
we're not sure why. Supposedly, the whole city was painted pink in the
early 20th century for a Prince of Wales visit.
People were getting ready for the big
kite flying festival that was coming up in a few weeks, and the kite shops
were doing a brisk business.
And if your money is old and ragged, or
you want to get rid of all those coins, the sidewalk money changer is the
guy to see.
Breck liked the Rajasthani taxis...
It is louder, dirtier, smellier
and poorer. We spent one day here and were glad the other two were on ventures
out of the city.
It is more orange than pink, though, and
the grime and betel spit everywhere just makes it dirty no matter the color.
This is a place you could get something
to eat with your spool of kite string!
The watch repair shop, situated right
off the main road, is where they do it real old-school style!!
