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!
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.
