The Pink City

We take the bus in the morning to Jaipur. We have two days there, one for tours and another for whatever. I took a few photos from the window as I usually do to document a different perspective than the top sites and cities.  

    
    
    
 
We arrive in Jaipur and go to visit the Amber Fort. There’s a lot of forts on this trip. Just go with it. The Amber Fort has some amazing details. Each fort gets better and better.

Outside the fort… 

 After the fort, we make a quick stop. They’re converting this place into a restaurant.  

 Then we take a short walk through town. We’ll have the whole day tomorrow to do as we please. The city uses red sandstone and paint which earns the nickname Pink City.

Now the main event– Bollywood! We go out to Raj Mandir Cinema to see Singh is Bling, a delightful comedy where two people fall in love via translator. I hope to watch the movie again with subtitles to get all the details not that it’s needed. The theater is also well known for its art deco inspired style.
