Jaipur is gorgeous! With its Moghul palaces and terracotta coloured architecture, it’s become a favourite destination for Indian tourists. The shopkeepers know this and their hole in the wall stores are an Aladdin’s cave of expensive fabrics, carpets and intricate handicrafts.
As for the touts, they ignored us. They probably (rightly!) figured, “those two dirtbag cyclists, they won’t be willing to splash out on silk saris.”
