There are very few places, moments that remain etched in your memories for a long time. I look back at the last year and I don't remember much else apart from all the travelling that we (wife and I) did, the spectacular places we saw, lovely moments we experienced and the wonderful people we met on our travel.
One of such moments was the time we spent in Udaipur. The beautiful city with its picturesque lakes and historically significant architecture will remain with me for a long long time!
I've tried to give this image a slightly dark feel and a sombre mood, because I'm beginning to miss this place :). Let me reiterate this once again: friends living in India or visiting India, please don't miss out on the colorful state of Rajasthan, specially Udaipur, one of my favorite places in India.
Have a wonderful weekend everybody!!
