Jojawar, small but fabulous. Day 7.

1 12 2009

Between Udaipur and Pushkar we stopped for a night in the small village of Jojawar. By far the smallest place on our itinerary, it has maybe 8000 residents. Its nice, small and flat, easy to walk.

On arrival into our hotel, we checked into the old place. It feels like 100 years ago it was a luxury palace hotel for the British, probably hunting. Now? Its feeling a bit run down but full of character. Rather nice place actually. Seems to be about the only place in town, probably as its a good stopping point on the way from A to B.

This girl met us out the front of the place and was more than willing to chat. Everytime we asked, she came out with a different name, seemingly enjoying verbally sparring with the tourists.

Girl of many names.

The town, small, cute and rural. Cows and animals have right of way.

Holy Cow! It's Sacred

Some of my favourite Indian pics came from the town, it was just so nice with friendly people.

The kids especially were fun. Not demanding money or things like kids in bigger cities, just much more fun and cheeky.

Can I have some please?

More interesting was the “shopping”. Being a small local village, there are no supermarkets, shopping centers or the like. Most produce seemed to be sold on street carts, with most of it looking extremely fresh and delicious. The fish however……Nowhere near the ocean and we didn’t see any big rivers.

The night? Well, the restaurant “buffet” wasn’t the best, but sitting in the courtyard, playing cards, drinking beverages looking at this sunset? Amazing.
