May 6, 2017 - pushkar to Agra

So I obviously haven't written in a while!! I had this one saved in my phone from pushkar to Agra from a couple days ago.. Aylish and I went to the top of the mountain by gondola to check out the stiva temple at the top. The gondola ride was 2 dollars and in turn the way up was taken up by a good view and nervous laughs. The view was awesome of Pushkar. The city is the last one before the real start of the Thar desert.  It's known for the world's biggest camel fair. Sometime in October I think. After that we came back down to go for a late...

May 4, 2017 - Pushkar

We took the city bus to oushkar because we didn't want to wait till the direct bus was full. The bus terminal was nuts. It was about 50 huge buses all blowing their horn at the same time. Everyone was calm until their bus came then it was a mad dash to get a seat otherwise you were standing. We thought we were smart by getting a window seat for air but it was more like a heater blowing full blast on you for for a couple hours haha. I had some serious swass by the end. We were pouring water on our heads by the end of it and getting laughed...

May 2, 2017 - jaipur

Today I woke up with my first mad dash to the bathroom. Mom, you jinxed me by asking about that haha. That's all I have to say about that lol. We woke up and agreed we had to get our next couple of days planned out.  We went to the train station with the intention of booking a couple first class tickets but they're mostly booked up so we are gonna take buses for most of them. Everything is a puzzle here and everything take like 5 times as long to accomplish. It's good because it really tests your patience and mental stability lol. We don't...

May 1, 2017 - a Jaipur intro

Alright so the sleep in the Mumbai airport was the worst. We both took gravol and it hit us like bricks. We were in a different terminal than I was in last time. Last time it was quiet, and carpeted, and there were literally beds to sleep on. In this terminal? No. Hard cold rock to sleep on.. didn't plan in advance for that. So that was shitty. Moving on... we got to Jaipur, which is the capital city of rajasthan with 13 million people at about 7am and the temp was 31 degrees. We're staying in another roadhouse hostel and it's great We're...

Nov 4, 2016 - Jaipur

We got an early morning start to beat the rush at the Amber (pronounced Ameer) Fort. Her we took an elephant ride for about 15 minutes to the Fort. That was fun. We had speedy Gonzales for an elephant ( not his real name). Dorothy's and I were the 8th group out and by the time we got to the top we were second as our elephant sped by all the rest as if they were standing still. If we would have had another 2 minutes we would have been the first up there. Immediately upon disembarking the elephant (and the bus on arrival for that matter) we...

Nov 3, 2016 - Ranthambore to Jaipur

Today was another travel day as we made our way from Ranthambore to Jaipur. When we arrived in Jaipur went to the Jaipur astrological centre which had a number of structures built in the 17th and 18th century such as a very large sundial which we determined was 10 minutes slow, and then several other structures that tracked the astrolical signs. These were used to predict futures for the Maharajas that built the centre. After about 25 minutes we made our way to the Maharaja 's castle which was very elaborate. Unfortunately we were unable to...

Nov 2, 2016 - Ranthambore

It was an early morning today as we set out on our morning safari to look for tigers at 6:30 AM. It was rather cool once we entered the park and since I was the only stupid person on the canter without a coat I had to wrap Dorothy's shawl around me. We traveled around zone 5 in the park and saw some tiger paw prints but unfortunately by 10:30 we had to leave the park without seeing a tiger, although we did run into some people who had seen one that morning in the same zone. We did however see spotted deer, sambar deer, blues antelope,...

Oct 17, 2016 - Udaipur, Rajasthan​ - Inde

Lien à l'album photos en ligne / Link to the online photo album: https://goo.gl/photos/jew1tANXEndAsE2XA Udaipur fût un moment "bonbon" de notre séjour en Inde. Tout y était sublime: blancheur des édifices, tranquillité et la couleur de son soleil. Cette ville est située dans l'État du Rajasthan, entourée par les lacs Pichola, Fateh Sagar et Swaroop Sagar. Un p'tit fait anodin, la ménagerie du raja d'Udaipur est le lieu de naissance de la panthère Bagheera dans le Livre de la Jungle. La ville a aussi servi de décor au Tigre du Bengale de...

Oct 14, 2016 - Jodhpur - Ville Bleue

Lien à l'album photos en ligne / Link to the online photo album: https://goo.gl/photos/Q62SXqG7Rwd2HQKr9 Nous sommes toujours dans la découverte du Triangle d'Or avec un arrêt de 3 jours à Jodhpur. Jodhpur est communément surnommée la « ville bleue » car la plupart des maisons de la vieille ville sont peintes de cette couleur. Le bleu indiquait que ces maisons appartenaient à des membres de la caste des brahmanes. Le bleu offre aussi l'avantage de protéger de la chaleur et de repousser les moustiques. Jodhpur est aussi appelée « la cité du...

Oct 12, 2016 - Jaisalmer, ville du désert

Lien à l'album photos en ligne / Link to the online photo album: https://goo.gl/photos/26mp8Q5WjVeXAdLZ7 Nous avons rejoint Jaisalmer après un 6 heures de route en plein désert tout en longeant la frontière avec le Pakistan. L'air climatisé crinqué au max, on suait à grosse goutte dans la voiture tout en admirant les chameaux, vaches sacrées et villages berbères qui longeaient notre longue route. Jaisalmer est une ville fortifiée du Rajasthan située à 100 km de la frontière du Pakistan. Actuellement, un quart des Jaisalmeris habitent dans...
