The other day I was perusing Expedia for flights (one of my favourite ways to pass a cozy winter evening) and I was so tempted to book a trip to India. Luckily my husband was sitting next to me and gave me one of his “are you off your head?” looks and I managed to not press PURCHASE. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to resist though.
Here is the next batch of my favourite images from our recent trip to Delhi and Rajasthan.
I’m pretty sure this guy is paid to sit at the Jodhpur Fort and smoke his pipe. And I’m also pretty sure there are thousands upon thousands of photos of him out there in the world.I loved this little girl’s brightly coloured outfit. She was swirling around and giggling and generally making everyone in her vicinity smile and feel happy.One of my all time favourite things about India has to be the decorated trucks you see everywhere you go. The time and effort that the drivers put into embellishing their trucks with stickers, tassels, garlands and pompoms and hand-painting the bumpers is unbelievable. I asked one of our drivers to stop at a roadside “Truck Decoration” shops and I bought a suitcase full of all of the above. Judging from the owner’s reaction I’m pretty sure I was the first tall blond female customer to enter his shop. Woman doing her daily washing in the Rajasthan countryside.
