Exploring Jaipur: The Pink City

I've heard good things about Rajasthan from friends who have visited the region. Our first stop in Rajasthan was the Pink City of Jaipur. I was looking forward to exploring this region after experiencing the craziness of Delhi, Agra, Kolkata, and Varanasi. The cold wind trickled into the cabin of the train, the Indian countryside whisked by, day turned into night as the sun's limp fingers slowly rested on the other side of the world. It took approximately 6 hours by train --- I was finally in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
