And Now …

Udaipur

You know what I did? I wrote a post about Udaipur. It wasn’t blow your mind good, it wasn’t bad … But it took some time. And then when I went to schedule it … It was lost. I didn’t type it up outside my browser first so … It was gone. Really gone. Oh the frustration. So I’m not going to give Udaipur the same treatment the other cities got. And perhaps you’ll prefer that, because this will be much less wordy. This will be a short picture tour.

Touring the City Palace – a tall man (6’6″?) was a main attraction for a school field trip.

Watching an artist “paint” on water. (That’s water under all that thick layer of green powder.)

At Jagmandir Island (where J Lo performed at a very rich family’s wedding).

The view from our hotel – the neighboring building was under construction and had families living there. Including a family of monkeys passing through (note the ones on the left).

Dear Ellen,

In Udaipur, as in nearly all places we saw, our guide told us about palaces and the amazing art that went into them. Then, the guides would “kindly” offer to let us see this art being performed even today … at a store/art workroom. From this I learned that: ancient art, dying art, government subsidized and “my most honorable guests” are all ways to say “hey buddy, get ready for sticker shock!”
