There are 3 ways to the top of the Amber Fort, walk (it is long), a jeep up the side streets (our method) or an elephant ride that wanders up the hill.
I jumped in front of this one as it made its way back down the hill.
The road up and down the hill is packed with jeeps. Elephants randomly walking into the middle of the street do not speed things up.
Neither do the random cattle. Wandering free and completely unafraid.
I had a chuckle at this sign. Not an issue.
This fellow was moving much, much faster than we were.
It was very hard not to jump out of our parked vehicle for some authentic popcorn. But the rule was clear, no street food, no matter how seemly innocent – not even popcorn.
Never a dull moment.
I love the colours on the man on the white horse, very regal
I think he was on the way to a wedding if I remember correctly.
Also, is the “no street food” rule yours or your guide’s advice?
Hi Elaine, no street food is everyone’s advice about India – unless you want to be doubled over. Reality is that the food has different microbes in it than our food. Even with our cautious approach to food and taking pro-biotics and eating a ton of yogurt, 3 of the 4 of us got quite ill. Only Narda didn’t get ill – because she is doesn’t enjoy meat .. so sticked to veggie dishes. I only avoided getting ill by eating 30 pepto-bismol tablets one day 🙂
