• Jodhpur

    A brief visit to Jodhpur was enough for us to realise once more that we prefer small cities or towns rather than big, noisy and traffic-packed cities. We arrived early in the morning and left again in the evening towards Udaipur, so we spent just the day walking around the city. As other times, we left our luggage in the train station cloak room, so we were free to climb the steep streets that lead to Meherangarh Fort on the top of the city.

    From up there, there were amazing views and we could understand why they call it the blue city, since all the houses are painted in sky-blue colour (traditionally blue signified the home of a Brahmin and the colour is also thought to repel insects).
