It’s amazing* (see note below) to see this fortress, one of the biggest forts in India, and we live inside it. The first place that is recorded to have used “zero” dating from 876 AD. Is that exciting to anybody else?
From our short walks we’ve had beautiful views. We can see the town and the houses below, and other buildings further away. We can see cars and motorcycles driving down the walls. We’ve seen Langus monkeys on one side of the fort. And on the other side, by the Students Houses, Mark, Lucas and Siena have seen lots of Rhesus monkeys. We’ve seen peacocks, parrots, and lots of other birds I haven’t learned the names yet. Lizards and butterflies of many colors, and so many other colorful insects.
This is one of the views of The Fort from a little lower ground.
And you can see The Fort from most of the places in the city. It stands tall in this hill, showing the power of the kingdom that once was.
*NOTE *I think I used these words (amazing, and incredible) at least once in every post, but everything is just that. And it still seems like a dream to be here. In India.
