How Bazaar

What did you do last Friday night? Well, I got to breeze through the Tripoliya Bazaar and street vendors in the Pink City of Jaipur. When you are on the streets, all five senses are used. You see all of the vibrant colors in the sarees for sale. You hear the lyrical Hindi language being spoke. You smell the amazing and almost indefinable aroma of tea, flowers, and city live. You feel the age of the 200 year old brink and limestone buildings. You taste just a bit of the cinnamon and spices.

I only got to spend about half hour there Friday night, but I could spend days – maybe weeks weaving my way through the small streets and allies.
