We spent several days in Bundi, Rajasthan, in November, 2016. It’s a small, pleasant city, with fewer tourists than many of the places we visited, such as Pushkar. We enjoyed walking through the town, taking photographs, meeting people, and enjoying the sights around us. I was able to further explore, through the creation of portraits and other photos, aspects of the culture that are so different than what I’m accustomed to.

Here are a few photos from the final half of the journey to India that Barbara and I took just about a year ago. We flew from Varanasi to see the Taj Mahal, which is worth going to Agra for, an otherwise un-notable city. We stayed just a day in Agra, and then on to Jaipur, stopping at Fatehpur Sikri and the incredible stepwell, Chand Baori, in the village of Abhaneri. In Jaipur we visited the old city, the Amer Fort, the Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing, and Jantar Mantar Observatory. Back in Delhi we went to the family farm of our driver one day, took the Saalaam Baalak Trust City Walk another, and went to the Jan Path Market on our last day there.

To see a larger selection of photographs, please go to my photo page : Agra-Jaipur-Delhi.

The Chand Baori stepwell was built between the 8th and 9th centuries. It goes down about 100 feet, 3500 steps.
