Day 268 (Kolkata, India)

Things have been up and down since my last post from Udaipur. I stayed there an extra night and then made my way with my travel partner to Pushkar for the camel fair. We made it there with a few days to spare before it was over so we got to check the place out for a few days. The...

Day 249 (Udaipur, India)
