Jaipur : Camels and Elephants Galore

The first morning in Jaipur  we decide to go for a walk.  It wasn’t even three minutes from the hotel when we saw our first camel.  It wasn’t a ‘tourist camel’ it was a ‘work camel’!  Even more exciting for us.  The camel was pulling a cart full of bags and was waiting for the loading to be finished.

We couldn’t believe our eyes.  Of course we had read and we knew we would see camels in Rajasthan, but really, here we were standing across the street from a camel!

We had seen a few camels before in Agra, when we went to see the Taj Mahal.  Remember that story with lucas? But it is different.  but Lucas still didn’t want to get too close to them.

Later on that same day, we got to see few other camels, all very pretty ‘tourist camels’.

And as we are walking this way, we saw our first elephants too!

This is the first one we saw.

We had never seen an elephant walking on a street!

So our new count for elephants is 126 and 35 camels.  Check out our animal count list on the side bar of this page. Hopefully we’ll see some more soon.

      En serio mama! Super chori ver a los camellos y elefantes como quien ve buses o autos o bicicletas. Hasta ver a las vacas en las calles parece “casi” natural ahora. Pero camellos… increible! Todo super entretenido. Tanta cosa que ver y recordar. Esperamos que con estas fotos y videos y cuentos podamos acordarnos de nuestra estadia aca estos 5 meses.
