I am back from a 2 day trip to the 'Pink City' - Jaipur. While I had work for a day, I stayed back for a day to see the one big city in Rajasthan that I have not been to, having been to Udaipur, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer in the past.

I had always stayed away from Jaipur thinking that it will be just another big city. And while my trip did reinforce that thought, the city turned out to be fairly interesting.

I enjoyed traveling through the 'Pink City' (it's only a small part of the city that is pink). The neat layout, the shopping, the hustle and bustle, was fun! I also indulged in a little shopping (signs of settling down ? !)

But it falls short of the traditional Rajasthani experience that Jodhpur and Jaisalmer provide, or the beauty of Udaipur.

A pleasant introduction to a fascinating state.
