Me back

Just got back from a very very tiring whirlwind tour of Rajasthan : not really complete , but still pretty good one.
Parents have this habit of jamming any tour choke full , with time barely enough to sleep and eat :-) And this one was not really much different : we spent 1500 km on the road (which included quite a bit of ghat road) - which translated to travelling about 12 hours or more per day !

Will write up more about it later - when I have more time and patience (maybe post a few pics too !).
The one place which still stands in my mind is the fort at chittor. It is extremely moving ... and you can almost visualise the events , battles , intrigues which happened there.
The fort looks impregnible even now ! And when you stand facing the front enterance - looking down on the main battlefield - you can almost "see" the invaders and the defenders.
The place seems to have been filled with romantics ... and I was left deeply touched.

Will post more later ... save to say , Rajasthan is an awesome place to visit : it is one thing to read about it , and totally different to actually visit the legendery places.

@ vinay
It is pretty nice place to visit - but when you do , pace the trip properly : and dont cram it like what my parents end up doing :-)

@manish
