I knew this didn´t make any sense to go from Jaipur to Agra and then go back to Jodhpur, but as I didn´t go to Agra before I had to see Taj Mahal. Partially because it´s a landmark, partially because haters gonna hate. So after my 2 days stay in Agra I found a 15 hours bus to Jodhpur, of course cheap one without AC, because I´m saving.
Initially I wanted to spend in Jaipur a week, but after three days I´ve already seen everything. It´s a big city, but there´s nothing really much to see (or to do). So my host Kamal advised me to go to Pushkar as he meant that it is a popular place where tourists like to go. And although I´ve never heard of Pushkar before I´ve just decided to go. Because why not?
I arrived to Agra by train and I have to say that the ride was pretty comfy, although boring. 3rd sleeper class is not that awesome as it seems, and AC is not an AC but a fan. Surprise, surprise. Anyways, I experienced again that locals know nothing as you can ask them even about the name of the station and they won´t know it or tell you wrong. So once more, without GPS you are screwed.
After recovering from the wedding party (no, no, there was no alcohol, only big amounts of food) I´ve decided to go for a little sightseeing. As my host (and lonely planet) stated apart from the Old Town and Amber fort there is not really much to see in Jaipur. And he was right.
One of the things I wanted to experience in India was taking part in a Hindu wedding. And I was so lucky to receive three invitations (!!!), but physically could attend only to one, which is a pity, because I like weddings.
