Winter memories in summer

An unseasonably hot weather here
On the whole i prefer winter to summer
We are all under the weather here
Drinking ginger tea to warm the itchy throat
I am not always at my best on hot or humid days.
But the real truth is that I like to experince all the seasons
I love:
 I love the cool mornings that open up into warm afternoons in spring. 
I love the way autumn days close in as the sun recedes into an amber bloom. 
I love the carefree looseness of a summer’s day, especially by a good beach with fresh seafood for lunch. 
I love the briskness and clarity of a sunny winter dawn. And, truth be told, I also love being braced against a cold, grey winter’s evening 
Thoughts of cold grey winter days takes me to some  unshared stories of winter
a trip to jaipur,as it is the easiet weekend  trip that can be done from delhi...

We had been to jaipur a lot of times,each time seems as though this is the first..
We always stay in Arya Nivas,a old haveli whihc has been made into ahotel
winter seasonals in bloom 

love the balconies ,seatings and their long corridors full with floating petals..

Itinery Planning time

Chai time

brochures and travel guides,we have a whole lot of them..

floating petals in the window sills

my little ones little one ready for breakfast
each one has their choice..
we thought of revisiting Jaigarh fort once more..

from the jaigarh one can see the amber fort

from the najafgarh palace windows..

then we were off to sanganer to visit the pottery and blockprinting factory
saw them at work

shadows amused us..

off to the central museum..

a portarit of a rajsthani man ,he owns a camel
painted elephants,a scene from the jaipur streets..

Relaxing and feet up..

flowers see to be telling a story ,dont you all think...

The trip continued for two more days,where we roamed in the markets and done some purchases..
.bring you lots more later
