      פושקר - Dumping yard

      October 11 in India ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

      אחרי שהעברנו עוד סיבוב בשוק של פושקר, נסענו אחר הצהריים לאתר שנקרא Dumping Yard.
      האתר נמצא באיזור בו נמצאים המון מפעלי חיתוך שיש וגרניט לבן .
      המפעלים היו מעבירים את כל האבק והחלקיקי שיש, שהיו נוצרים בעת חיתוך הלוחות, לאיזור מסויים - מכאן גם השם של המקום.
      עם השנים המקום הפך להיות לבן ונוצרו בו עמקים וגבעות והגשמים יצרו בריכות.
      המקום נראה כאילו ירד שלג באמצע הקיץ.

      כנראה שהאתר פעיל גם כיום (בחלק פינתי של האתר היו משאיות וטרקטורים) אבל באתר ניתן לראות משלחות רבות של צלמים והפקות של צילומי חתן וכלה וכן צילומי קליפים.

      לא נתפס איך נוצר כל האתר הזה רק מחלקיקים של שיש וגרניט.

      פושקר - לילה ראשון

      October 9 in India ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      את הבוקר התחלנו בנסיעה במונית מאודייפור לפושקר.
      הנסיעה ערכה כ-5 שעות ועברה דרך ערים וכפרים רבים.
      בדרך ראינו פסל ענק של האל שיווה.

      הגענו לפושקר בסביבות השעה 15:30.

      בערב חגגנו את חג סוכות בבית חבד בסוכה ענקית שהכילה כ-350 ישראלים.
      סוכה עם אוירה של בית
      "ושמחתך בחגך והיית אך שמח"

      חג שמח

      Pushkar day #4

      February 27, 2020 in India ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

      I was not feeling good, still, so I asked to go and get some dry food for me...so looked like he was having bananas and crackers for breakfast and Tom also had the same. We chilled out at the hostel for a bit. A lot of this in Pushkar so far but it felt as if it was the perfect place to do it and we both thought we were going to feel refreshed after just slowing down a bit. Desperate times called for desperate measures...I’ve never been one to take pills when I’m sick, but I took some Imodium, 2 in fact, and after a little while we went out to get Thali from the 50rupee Thali place...I ordered one this time but only wanted the rice and the chapatti so I donated the curry to Tom, much to his delight. After food, which I choked down and Tom wolfed down as his potion was now massive, we walked to the lake and chilled outside the Ghats.

      We just watched the world go by...firstly we watched 2 women get completely scammed by some man giving them a blessing next to the holy lake... but they seemed to be buying it so it was fine. Secondly, an older guy was being told to take his shoes off in the Ghat area and he was not happy about it at all. We were trying to figure out where he was from, and then he said in the most German accent ever “why do I have to take my shoes off, everything is so dirty here” which seemed to really upset the men sat around who seemed to be policing the rules and also waiting for westerners to come by to scam when they started saying “if you think it is dirty then leave”. Really friendly people. Thirdly, a local man saying to a girl stroking a dog “I don’t like dogs, I kick them”....which really summed up how backwards and generally stupid so many Indian people were, especially with animals.

      After all this people watching, we made our way back to the hostel for (you guessed it) some chill time. After a few hours I started to feel a bit better so we decided to venture out to the sunset spot that the hostel recommended we did for sunrise (we didn’t, oops). On the walk I began to turn bad again and dove into a grubby little hotel with only squat toilets available. Tom suggested numerous times that we turn back but I was being stubborn and wanted to carry on...I already felt bad for not managing to do a lot of thins here in Pushkar and Tom has been my carer. I insisted we continued so we did for a little while however half way up the viewpoint I was really struggling. Tom changed his approach and said that he couldn’t be arsed to continue anymore...obviously a little white lie but I took it and we turned back just as the sun set. Tom was wanting to grab some food on the way back, so I left him to it as I shuffled back feeling terrible and bloated. With the fear of the runs, I quickened my pace but when I got back and rushed to the toilet it was only gas!!! The Imodium worked a treat!! Upon Tom returning, let him know the good news and so we both got showered and watched “We’re the Millers” on the iPad and then both passed out.

      It's so cold here!

      December 14, 2019 in India ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

      Our first hostel was super beautiful and deserved its own little post. One thing though, its so cold here! Our first day was freezing with no sun or anything (haha while writing this I'm realising I'm complaining about 10 degrees when it's literally freezing in Holland but Still) our plans have changed and we're going more south instead of going north. So our route isn't going to make much sense anymore but oh well its worth it.

      We were only going to stay in Pushkar for two night but stayed longer to do some charity work. We did move hostel though because this hostel wasn't that great with the cold and all.

      Our first impressions here weren't that good BTW. Which weren't helped by the cold. Anyway it's very very touristy and didn't feel very authentic at all. There is not much to do either apart from a seemingly famous scam we weren't aware of until we became victims of it! They hand you a flour at the start of the market and tell you to bring it to the river so you think a nice ok we'll stroll to the river. There we got targeted by some old man who seperated us and performed some bullshit ritual and wouldn't let me see Kaya again until I promises him money so I was just agreeing to whatever cause there were two men towering over me and applying pressure. Oh well, many have been a victim to this scam but I was still a bit pissed off that they got me. So Pushkar wasn't very high on our favoured list.

      Not nice! I guess you learn what to look out for and you can definitely alert others to this horrible scam. So angry that they target women in this way.

      A little good karma

      December 15, 2019 in India ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

      So we stayed in Pushkar to do charity work as I said. This was really nice though we didn't do very much but it has inspired us to do more next time. Though if you want to do actual good charity work here (that will actually make a difference/ isn't a scam) you need to subscribe to some apps and stuff. We didn't think that far ahead and also its like 300€ a year so....

      Anyway that's why this was perfect. We ate at this cafe that supports a local school. They had a poster up that said you could help out anyway you wanted. So we volunteered for a day of service in the cafe, indirectly helping the kids cause we were helping the man that owns it. We also bought a bunch of school supplies and dropped them off at the school the next day with some fruit. Then we spent some time with the kids just playing which actually felt a bit weird because we were taking away their learning time but maybe that's me overthinking.

      The school was just one room with about 25 students and some older boys from another highschool that come to help out. The kids were lovely but ofcourse it was eye opening to see their school and realise how lucky we are. You know these things but it's different when you're actually there.

      Pushkar

      January 3, 2020 in India ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

      Pushkar was the first stop, being the three of us, in a Hindu holy city. The daily rituals include to wash themselves in the holy water of the ponds and pray for the health of their families. Brahman people help with the so called "Pooja" asking for a donation.

      The atmosphere on the streets of Pushkar and nearby the lakeside temples (so called "Ghats") is very special. Here it's only allowed to walk barefoot. With tons of cow dung everywhere it was an exciting adventure. One of our highlights was to watch the sunset from a rooftop with a view to the lake. Thanks to the famous Lungi Dance I finally learned some Bollywood moves in a dance academy :)

      Merry Christmas from Pushkar

      December 24, 2019 in India ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

      Pushkar is just wonderful! A small town, with a lake in center (holi, of course), streets with food and all kinds of stuff... We met a Slovenian guy living and working there, hs a school for girls. We just spent a day walking around, shopping, taking pictures, eating.
      Me and Matjaž went up nearby hill for a overview of the city, quick 15 minute walk :) In our way up we met Jana, a Slovenian girl traveling India.
      We went by the lake at sunset, people played drum, danced, it was really calm and nice :)
      For Christmas dinner we went to some nice restaurant, also girl we met joined us, but we left soon because "traditional Rajasthany music" included drums and it was just too loud to even talk!
      After leaving we heard some psytrance music so of course we went and check. We were the first ones to come, soon followed by many tourists / trancers, party on! 🤘 Since you cannot drink alcohol in Pushkar we smuggled some Gin and had our own gintonics 😊 We left at around midnight because we heard police was coming searching for beers. #yolo

      אחר הצהריים נסענו עם זוג ישראלי נוסף בריקשה של בנטי לכיוון מקדש הקופים והרכבל.

      בנטי הוא נהג ריקשה חצי אפוי חצי מחוק, אבל מצחיק נורא והנסיעה איתו בהלוך וחזור היתה שווה כל רגע.
      יש לו כל מיני משפטים. למשל כמו: "אמאל'ה" (הכלה ועומר אדם),
      Full power, no shower
      בשלב מסויים הוא נתן לבחור, שישב לידו, לנהוג בריקשה וזאת כדי נסיעה...

      הגענו לקראת ערב (קצת לפני השקיעה) לקופה לקנות כרטיסים לרכבל שמעלה לתצפית.
      הכרטיסן אומר שזה ייקח כ-50 דקות (!) עד שנעלה על הקרון - חששנו שנפסיד את השקיעה
      לקחנו את הריזיקה וחיכינו בתור שהיה ארוך (כדאי להצטייד בקרם נגד יתושים) והצלחנו לעלות על הרכבל ולהגיע רגע לפני השקיעה.
      כמובן שניתן לעלות ולרדת בשביל של כ-1,000 מדרגות (לא ספרתי - אבל מעדות של ישראלי שירד את זה, זה היה מאד קשה).

      הגענו לתצפית, שיש בה מקדש הינדי, אבל איך שיוצאים מהקרון, רואים קופים והרבה קופים ומי שהגיע עם שקית אוכל גלוייה, הקופים היו מגיעים אליו, בתוך המון האנשים, וחוטפים לו את האוכל.
      זה קרה גם בחזור, כשהמתנו לרכבל לרדת, מישהו הוציא משהו וקוף אחד פשוט קפץ עליו והילד שהיה איתו, בכה מרוב טראומה.

      התצפית עצמה די יפה ומהווה מקום נפלא להביט על העיר מלמעלה וכן בשעת השקיעה היא מהווה מקום נהדר לצילומים.

      Christmas day

      December 25, 2019 in India ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

      Merry Christmas! It was another easy day, more food, chais and shopping. Me and Mara had a night taxi to Jaipur because we have a plane tomorrow to Hubli.
      Bought a tibetan bowl for a friend and one for myself. Wonderful sound!
      Evening taxi took around 3 hours to Jaipur hostel, run by a really sweet lady, who cooked us dinner, told us all about her son working in Ireland. We had to go to bed soon, only 4 hours until alarm!
