Planes, Trains, Autos and Elephants


A hot steamy day in Jaipur as we approached the ancient
capital of the Kachhawaha Rajputs, Amber. 
A ride on an elephant to the top was promised
and we did not want to miss it. 
We decided to leave the snake behind.





It was worth every moment.....


even watching the this fellow bobbing along on the  return ride down the hill.



 In transit, thru Mumbai, on our way home....
best wishes for a wonderful weekend to one and all!

  5. I grew up in Mumbai, dear Jeanne. My formative years were there and I remember the place fondly.

    Hug the place for me, will you.

    Today I saw the film "Out of Africa" and when I saw Streep's eyes, I thought of you.

    Joy always,
    Susan
