Still traveling through Northern India. This past week my aunt and I have made it to Agra, home of the Taj Mahal (top right), Pushkar, home of the Brahmin Temple (top left, my aunt and I on a camel cart), and to Jaipur, the capital of the state of Rajasthan (bottom right, my aunt and I in a howdah atop an elephant on our way up Amber Fort).
As stunning as the sights in India are, this trip has been as much about the luxury hotels my aunt has booked us in and the first-class treatment she has provided for us throughout. That image in the background above is the nook-like courtyard of our hotel in Jodhpur set for dinner. In a little over a week, I turn back into a pumpkin.
