Day 7 – 8 – Jaipur

The ride from Jodhpur to Jaipur was quite a smooth sailing one. Lovely roads, straight highways. Only thing that would stop people from hitting triple digits would be the animals that would be lazing around on the road and off the highway.

During the day, this pink city was a bit hot. Still managed to check out a few places.

Amer Palace is another lovely place that would always have less words and time to experience it.

Visited Hawa Mahal, which is supposed to have over 900 windows for ventilation and tackling the hot summers of Rajasthan. The kind of technology our country has possessed since ages is surely an eye opener.

In the evening stumbled upon a street side pani puri (patashi) wala who serves it with 5 different flavours.

One thing to observe is that Jaipur police has been able to implement the pillion helmet rule successfully. Something that the rest of India could also pick up for road safety.
With a variety of food to try, places to shop, culture to experience and monuments to see, will surely need to visit Jaipur during winter for at least a week.
