Jaipur, Rajasthan

Here are just some city shots of Jaipur within the walls. Jaipur is known as the Pink City. I found it to be fascinating, chaotic, really polluted, and very cool. If you go check out Gem Palace and Amrapali for bomb 22 k gold jewelry, you won't be dissapointed. Gem palace was amazing! So laid back, and the owners would let you just hang out and go through their jewelry without pressuring you at all. And give you masala chai! I found an amazing ring at Amrapali- 22k gold with a ruby on either side, it was about 70 years old, and I later discivered it was actually an opium holder that had little doors that had been welded shut.

Monkeys roam pretty freely within the city, you'll see them all over the walls and tops of building. On the ground level you'll see the most chill cows, even camels and elephants. I almost got attacked by a monkey! But I live to tell about it.
