From Udaipur to Milan

Over the week-end I flew to Udaipur and joined mamma and Massimo in their last leg of their trip around Rajasthan: Agra, Ranthambore, Bundi, Chittorgarh, and, precisely, Udaipur.

As in most of the cities in Rajasthan, the main attraction in Udaipur was the former Maharaja’s palace, the City Palace. Besides the very nice location though (rising abruptly from the waters of Lake Pichola) the City Palace didn’t enter among the top palaces in our rankings.

However, our stay in Udaipur has been very pleasant, and, above all, an opportunity to chat and catch up after so many months apart.

Unfortunately, as in any self-respecting fairy tale, ‘midnight’ has come too soon - exactly when we were re-gaining that confidence that the time spent apart had made a bit rusty.

Mum and Massimo have in fact left India on Monday morning, back to Milan. Have a safe trip back. Happy you came and, above all, that you managed to see in person another stopping place in my itinerant life…
