yeah, we are back from the big holidays....
that was really amazing and I saw a lot, what I now would like to show you, step by step....
First we had to fly from Chennai to Mumbai (Bombay) and from there to Jaipur. I was allowed to sit in the plane next to my hosts and I had a great view from the window, when we flew over Mumbai. In fact, in this city there life about 19 Million people and all you can see, when you go down to the airport are these slum- houses, where all the very poor people life.
Than we had to wait 5 hours, because our flight to Jaipur was canceled.... how boring that was!!!
We arrived Jaipur very late.
We enjoyed the warm welcome at the beautifull Jai Mahal Palace Hotel, ate something and went straight to bed.
The next day we explored the region of Jaipur.
Near by there is the big fort-palace of Amber, a beautiful, ethereal example of Rajput architecture, rises from a rocky mountainside.
Amber was the ancient capitel of Jaipur state. Construction of the fort was begun in 1592 by Maharaja Man Singh and it was later extended by other rulers, so you can see a lot of very different buildings there.
I also saw in the city of Jaipur the famous windpalace and the citypalace.
After this exhausting day, I relaxed a little at the hotel's pool.
