The Amber Fort in Jaipur is pretty. It is also crowded, with tourists, hawkers and guides. If you want to queue and don’t question whether they are ethically housed/trained/captive, you can ride an elephant up to the fort. We drove. It was a warm morning; we’ve taken off our jackets in Jaipur. In the street now, in addition to cows and dogs there are camels and elephants.
Our driver took us past a few landmarks in Jaipur as well as some popular shops for tourists. Dan and I got measured for some tailored suits (I chose a fabric that I hope I don’t regret) and Mum selected so many textile items she spent twice her budget.
