Agra, marble, feathers and mosaics

J11: Agra 7/4/2019 It’s not only always the same chaos when we arrive at an Indian bus station. De dust, horns, pollution, dirt and 3 drivers of tuktuk that assault us with crazy prices when we’re barely get off the bus. Prices end up going down in a hustle and bustle that becomes familiar. Agra…

Jaipur, Amber, scams and birds

J6-J7: Jaipur 2-3/4/2019 With traffic, I think we spent an hour entering Jaipur. We’re coming in from Bundi. It’s still days when the tuktuks throw themselves at us with totally crazy rates.

Bundi, tank, tank and lost palace

D5, J6: Bundi 1-2/4/2019 When we arrive at Bundi Junction from Chittorgarh, two tuktuk drivers rush towards us. We feed the exchange with lower and lower prices and leave one of the 2, high at the betel. He spends his time honking his horn… Even more than the others. Bundi is a small town east…

D3: From Udaipur 30/03/2019 We found a driver from our guesthouse to get to 2 remote sites in Udaipur. It is the fortress of Khumbalgarh and the Jain temple of Ranakpur. Both sites are a two-and-a-how drive from Udaipur. They’re an hour’s drive away. As it is hot, we negotiated to leave around 8am instead…

Introduction to our stay in North India

Good morrrning Gouiliomi! Namaste Varsha […] I’ve been working with Indians for six months. They are in Bangalore and New Delhi. When I arrive at work in France, it’s almost lunchtime at their home (3:30 or 4:30 a.m. jet lag). It’s hard to work remotely and over the phone. We only understand words and sometimes…
