It was a fascinating, but tiring trip. We wouldn’t think about going back, though (especially not to Rajasthan). My opinion did become somewhat milder now that we’re back home for three weeks.
The landscape is, with exception of the Aravelli mountains, boring. The cities are, save for a fortress and astounding temples, not very interesting and especially tiring (except for Udaipur, Pushkar, and Bundi). The people are of course unique (which is the case in every country).
We probably set our expectations too high. By the way, we are wondering whether Rajasthan is indeed the most interesting area of India.
Raj does seem like an ideal driver for a trip like this. Again Rob, thank you for intervention.
