The holiday so far

A quick update: Have been super-busy with the four back-to-back weddings; but have been having so much fun!

The week in Kathmandu was great & the highlight was the short flight we took over the Himalayan mountain range to spot Mt. Everest. I must admit though that the view of the entire snow-topped range is so imposing; it gets difficult to figure out that the peak of Everest is indeed taller than its peers.
The half-week in Jaipur was my first exposure to Rajasthan & now I so want to be a Rajput princess in my next life. If I had to choose one photographic memory of Jaipur it would be this one: the 'Sheesh Mahal' (Palace of mirrors) in Amer Palace. Its nothing like the Bollywood version seen in Madhubala's Mughal-e-Azam, but its beautiful nevertheless. And then we went to Mumbai and it was the the best part of the holiday thanks to my darling nephew !!!
