Jaipur- the Pink City

Monkeys, Elephants, Camels...

sunny 35 °C

We arrived in jaipur, the capital of rajasthan, yesterday. Some areas of the city are pink, because when a prince (forgot which one) visited the city in the 19th century, the whole city was painted pink to welcome him... (Pink was the colour of hostility)

Our Hostelrooms are amazing and we have an awesome view on the mountains from our beds.

We already spent hours in the monkey tempel watching these sweet creatures eat, fight and sleep. I fell so in love with them.

Luckily, jaipur is the best city when it comes to animal diversity. When walking down the streets of jaipur, we saw monkeys, elephants, camels, cows (of course), goats, sheeps, dogs...Sometimes even sleeping on the crowded road. The drivers always take car to not hit them or wake them up. Today we went to Amber Fort, Hawa Mahal and to the elephant house. We doubted the elephants being happy living in a crowded city and being painted with bright colours. Anyway, we gave them some bananas and they really seemed to be enjoying that!

Afterwards we went to a small domestic fabric that produces clothes for the whole world. It was a small, hidden shabby room and we could not believe that this was the place where the TopShops collection was made. We tried on some Saris after drinking a chai and ended the evening with a beer on our rooftop terrace! Nice greetings from incredible india :-)

Are you 100% positive this is a HOSTEL? If it's more than $ 250/night and you have your own butler it's rather called hotel...
