Jodhpur: The Blue City 

Jodhpur is known as the blue city for the many buildings that are painted blue.  There is at least one reason for them being painted that color but I’m darned if I can remember even one.  All I know for certain is that it sure is purdy.

Yesterday afternoon we took autorickshaws up to the fort and had a nice tour of the various museums in the fort.  Almost too much to absorb but the displays were quite good and ranged from elephant howdas to palanquins to royal cradles to paintings.

We also stopped at a lovely scarf shop.  Enough said?

Today, in addition to the wildlife, we also visited a village where they weave traditional Rajasthani durries. They were glorious!  Need I say more?
