As far as Indian journeys go, this one was quite leisurely. Only three hours driving time and on roads that are not plagued with mad lorry drivers. Plenty of time to stop, just to look plus, of course, the necessary cup of chai.
the back window of our car it seems to have a passion for collecting labels
last November the police 'borrowed' it for the election campaign, so it was
sporting an 'Official Election Car' sticker and the necessary red light on roof
this time we have a sticker from the film company, Car No 031, this caused
quite a lot of excitement when we stopped. I just had to wear my dark
glasses, travelling incognito, don't you know.
I wonder if the collection will have multiplied by our return in October
this is a typical rural scene in Rajasthan. It's a water well. The two
two cows walk round and round drawing the water which is pumped
on to the fields. Note the lady sitting on a little seat, encouraging
the cows to keep on going, and the man, just checking!
So, we stopped here and there, and eventually to stretch
our legs and have a cup of refreshing chai. You might gather that I
love chai, which is strange as I do not drink tea at home!
A bus pulled up for a rest break, hmm, chai and nibbles time for the passengers.
what to eat?
a little rest in the fresh air
and then it is time to get back on the bus
only another hour to go for us, and we are back in Udaipur for three days
