    Jodhpur, India

    November 21, 2017 in India ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Like all of India, the blue city of Jodhpur was noisy, bustling, and dirty. It is situated deep within the state of Rajasthan, so it was our first experience of a classic Indian desert city. The buildings are all side by side, square, multi-levelled, and usually painted light blue (hence the moniker 'the blue city'). On top of a hill overlooking the city is the Mehrangarh fort, a huge arabianesque castle. We spent one afternoon exploring this beast and visiting the museum inside.

    Other highlights of Jodhpur were the beautiful blue buildings (often with turquoise doors), a brilliant cafe serving the best coffee we have had in ages, and the local goats dressed in sweaters. Yep, you read right. Goats wearing sweaters... My favourite was a fiesty hipster look alike adorned in a cardigan and enthusiastically attempting to headbutt Whit (check the pictures).
