Where I stayed
At night, we go into the old city market and walk around and explore. Jodhpur is famous for its lassi, its fort, and its blue houses. We find the best lassi place and I make a mental note of where it is. We have a thali dinner and pick up some traditional Indian sweets across the road: delicious. That was it for the night.
The next morning we make our way back to the old market. First stop: best lassi in town, which puts it in the running for best lassi in India, which then puts it in the running for best lassi in the WORLD. Yes, this is my life. I enjoy a papaya lassi. I am pleased. It is in fact the best lassi I have had. I also grab a banana and samosa for brekkies. After this we hit up the Mehrangarh Fort that dominates the Jodhpur skyline. We take an audio tour for about 2.5 hours and it is quite fascinating, and very beautiful. I now understand why Jodhpur is famous for its blue houses as well. The views from the fort were spectacular and there are parts of Jodhpur which are covered in blue houses that stand out against the other random colors of the city. After we walk back down to the town centre, we go to the lassi shop again. I choose saffron lassi. It is the best lassi I have ever had. Welcome to second place papaya lassi, saffron can not be beaten. I am pleased.
Quiet afternoon due to the heat, then another rooftop sunset dinner. This dinner was special because we had a traditional band and dancers come and play for us on the rooftop, and it isn't an evening I am likely to forget soon. At this moment I enjoy India very much. This is all for Jodhpur, as we are taking a private car in the morning to Udaipur. Hurray for private cars with A/C. Go Canucks. :)
