INDIA: Jodhpur, The Blue City

The Old City district of Jodhpur, in Rajasthan, lives up to its name as the Blue City.  Really, just about everything in the district is blue.  A wonderful blue. . . .

Jodhpur is also called the Sun City for its beautiful weather.  Or maybe because, if it isn’t blue . . . then it is yellow and filled with light . . . .

And, as in any city I venture into . . .  through my eyes, some of it is monochrome . . . .

Next time, we meet in Jaisalmer.

Until then, Namaskār,

    • Thank you Ayn! Great to hear from you. I remember you saying how much you loved India – what a terrific culture, amazing people . . . I loved it too. I hope we meet up again soon.
