A Stop in the Middle of Nowhere
Water Bearers

To get a taste of rural India (and to break up the long distance between Jodhpur & Mt. Abu), we stopped for the night in the little town of Bhenswara, and set out to visit some of the local villages. We visited two villages in the late afternoon, just as evening prepartions were beginning - fetching water, brings the herds in from the field, etc. The villagers were familiar with digital cameras, and everyone but everyone wanted to look at their picture on the digital screen. We soon had an entourage of a couple dozen kids following us, getting pushier than we would have liked. But, I guess there's not a lot of excitement out here.

Mt. Abu, a hill station that was a favorite of newlyweds - sort of the Niagra Falls of India

Next: Mt. Abu
