Jodhpur to Delhi

My last post, late Tuesday, showed (link) my first day and a half in Jodhpur, India, the second largest city in Rajasthan. I stayed in that city from Monday around noon until a Thursday afternoon flight back to Delhi, where I spent Friday and Saturday. It’s Saturday evening now, and I will begin the trip back home late tonight after catching a play on the way to the airport. Anyway, here’s what I saw the last three and a half days in Jodhpur and Delhi.

On Thursday, my last morning in Jodhpur, I decided to take a two hour walk around the city.

Yet another view of the fort, from Om Cafe, a minute or so by foot from “King’s Retreat”, where we stayed.

And on Thursday it was back to Delhi, only a one hour flight from Jodhpur.

I’ll wrap up this post with a couple of photos I put on instagram today. I don’t have time to edit them.

It’s 6pm Delhi time, Saturday (7:30am in New York). Tonight, we are headed to the theater to see a play Delhi before going to the airport. After a six-hour midnight flight to Guangzhou, China, I’ll have a 19-hour layover in the Chinese manufacturing hub. I don’t really know what to expect but I’m looking forward to a day in China. As long as we can use Uber, we should be alright.
