Outside the libray, my friend Bharat and I

Well I am back in Jaipur! Was planning to do some of the south, but seeing as all the places I need to go to are up North, I thought to myself 'Where better place to go for Holi?' and the added bonus that the Elephant Fesitval also starts on the same day, 21st March!!

So I arrived in the Pink City - it's kind of nice to know your way around a little, although I missed so much last time as all the tourist places closed during the tribal problems - I am back and the place is safe :)

I've spent  some time catching up with an old friend and seeing many places. Went to see the City Palace yesterday, and the Amber Fort today, along with the monsoon Placae and Jantar Mantar! Seeing as I am here for a while I will try and get some photos up on this blog! The weather is nice, varying between cool, cloudy with a little rain to blazing hot sunshine and blue skies - perfect!!

I hired a moped to drive round the city and visited Amer, the small village outside Amber Fort. Have also visited many temples, places and have lots of photos to put on!! Took some time before Holi to go and see Johpur and Jaisalmer, catching the train back to Jaipur though Bikaner! Spent spare time exploring parts of Jaipur I haven't seen, meeting up with old friends and see bollywood movies like Race and Black and White that are screening at the moment :)
