Visitamos rapidamente el palacio, en donde actualmente vive alguien importante (algun principe de Rajastan?), y la otra mitad lo han reconvertido en hotel. Y nos pusimos de camino hacia Jaipur, cerrando asi el tour por Rajastan. El viaje fue tranquilo, sin complicaciones, bueno, eso teniendo en cuenta la forma de conducir en la India. Aqui os pongo algunos ejemplillos:
En una carretera de dos carriles en un mismo sentido se pueden ver cosas como: un carro tirado por un camello o una mula adelantar a una bici o rickshaw
// (english version)
In the morning I visited the Fort of Jodhpur, as agreed. The Fort is located up on top of a hill, which makes the city lie on its feet. From this place one can wonder even more the blue colour of the houses in Jodhpur's old quarter.
We visited quickly the palace, where nowadays somebody important ( some prince of Rajastan?) lives, and the other half of it was reconverted to a hotel. After that we started our journey back to Jaipur, closing up the tour around Rajastan
In a two lane road, in one same direction, one can find the following situations: a camel cart or a mule cart overtaking a byke or a rickshaw. At the same time, a motor-rickshaw overtaking the cart. In the middle (that should't be!) a lorry, and everywhere all around cars and motorbykes trying to overtake everything! You should know that here, like in UK, people drive on the left side, and therefore one overtakes from the right side. But that's not often applied: In this trip we have seen several times cars driving in the opposite direction (even police!!) in the side of the road (which here becomes a normal lane). Cars and motorbykes overtake lorries from right and left , etc. (lorroes should drive in the slow lane, the most left lane, since the right lane is to overtake. But it doesn't apply often!). This is why the lema of the trip was : "Incredible India!!"
