2014IndiaJaipur21Threading flowers into garlands on the side of the road.

2014IndiaJaipurumbrellasMy husband saw me eyeing these large colourful embroidered umbrellas and said “too bad it would be impossible to bring one home”.  I took it as a challenge and successfully got one home. Maybe even more than one.

The impressive Amer Fort in Jaipur.  Once again my son made eye contact with a monkey who jumped on his back and started punching him. I spent two weeks screeching ” for the love of Lucy STOP making eye contact with the blasted monkeys!!”.2014IndiaJaipurflowergarland
They’re everywhere.  Luckily.

One of the most stylish hairdressers I’ve ever come across. I’d love a few of those chairs for my living-room.2014IndiaJaipurkiteOne of the favourite past-times for kids in India is kite flying.  From almost every rooftop you can see little children with with their arms stretched skywards and their colourful kites floating high above.  My kids bought some kites made from chip bags for 5cents in a tiny town in the countryside and flew them off the roof-top of one of our hotels.  A highlight of the trip for them and a reminder to me that sometimes it’s the simple things that bring so much pleasure.

Hawa Mahal in Jaipur.  Looks peaceful in this photo but the traffic right in front of it is absolutely nuts.  I almost died crossing the street to take this photo.2014IndiaJaipur22More garland threading.  Never gets old.

Our car and driver for our trip to Bagru.  This guy was the epitome of cool and classy.  And that car was spotless and in mint condition.  Until my kids spent the day in it.
