Delhi-Japiur was called Pink City express..
night train..so..saves 1 hotel night..
I never could sleep well on Indian trains..
too much noise..every stop inbetween..
these noisy hawkers...chai...andhe..mumphalee..
reached Jaipur early morning..cup of tea in the railway station..
then I had to take a 3 wheeler ricksjah..towards Moti Doongri..
teachers hostel of Rajasthan University..got there safe..
these ricksjahs go fast..Ruby welcomed me with a good breakfast..
nice woman..she stayed at flat 11 of a block of Univ.buildings..
2 rooms..small bathroom..I got my own room..she used to keep
a white labrador dog called Bing..loveley dog..good safeguard..
bit later the doodwalla came(milkman)he was a typical Rajasthani
villager in loincloth,turban..and typical big Rajasthani moustache..
I was tired from the train trip...took a shower..and while Ruby..
went for her teaching job...I took a nap..she always went by bicycle..
she was a damn intellectual woman..is that why I married her later??
ahah..no..love..has to grow..it's mental..as said before...
I intended to stay 3 days..but stayed 1 and a half month..
so..time to discover Jaipur in all its aspects..
I went to movies..cultural events..the Univ..where Ruby teached..
giggling Indian shy girls...wondering what this long haired..bearded..
came to see in their Univ..Ruby was a good teacher...
her students had high respect for her..she spoke 4 languages fluently..
I think she was teaching in English or Hindi..I got myself a book..
in a jaipur bazar..to learn Hindi...I mean the spoken sentences..
i love that language..it sounds very funny..Jaipur was hot..
it almost NEVER rains there..if it does..
the kids..dance around like fools..because it rains very seldom..
so..first day..I just washed some clothes...took rest..
tomorrow..I was gonna attack Jaipur by bicycle..
i believe I've put some links on page 25??
in that 1 and a half month..I bareley spend money..
food I got free..sleeping accomodation as well..
when I cycled around..or visited touristical attractions..
musea etc???I spend some money..that's all..
I'll tell you all about Jaipur city..it's hot..crowded..
but..it got lots of character..I loved my stay there...
fabulous city..will tell you crazy peeps later on..
