Pushkar, pre Mela and village views

Some photo's......


misplaced advert....?

our ceiling.

our ravanattha's, resting in room

I got snapshotted into a Rajasthani newspaper....


little village nearby Pushkar, we drove their by motorbike and got a puncture. In return we got nice scenery and contact with jeery shepherd kids. Pity I didn't takes photo's of them. Perhaps because I was being busy getting pushed and teased by them ;)



van Nistelrooy #9 in India, while 'England' and it's flag was written on the front of his shirt ;)

The daughters of Polly and Tolly -our Brahmin hotel managers-, cheerfully posing in front of our hotel.



Bhopal, Kelasi and Pucca




Ravanattha player and teacher Rampal and his wife Sita. They are also featured in the documentary; 'Bhopa, the Art of Survival', about the ravanattha (see the links on right hand side)
