    Careful where you put your feet

    by monina_c Updated Feb 4, 2013

    Be careful when you negotiate the path leading up and down Bundi Palace. Parts of the path is steep and the ancient stones can be slippery to unwary feet. Our local guide Arvind had to help us down some parts of the path.

    Big thorns!

    If you are going to walk up the hill past Bundi Palace to Taragarh Fort, make sure you have some decent footwear on. The hillside is littered with thorns which, I kid you not, are at least half an inch long, and sharp as hell. I got a couple stuck in my foot and it was unbelievably painful - I collected one to bring home, and once I find it I'll post a picture of it to scale!

    Carry cash to Bundi

    We had endless trouble finding ATM's in Bundi. There were 2 that were close by to where we were staying- neither worked. Some hotels do not accept credit cards for payment- so it is a good idea to have some rupees on hand when visiting here. (American dollars are accepted, but your change will be given in rupees).

    Electrifying!

    How did they do this?

    Whereever there is power in India there is DANGER! Electric engineering is a kind of art in India - to use the words of an Indian biting on the wire to connect our TV to make it run: "That´s Indian style!"......and that means freestyle.
    Whenever you get close to any power cable - on the streets or in your room - be careful with touching anything.
    Now I can imagine why there are so many power fall outs - in Agra we witnesses a loud bang with a lightning and suddenly FRIED doves fell from the sky - this was not Cockaigne nor paradise, NO, there were just too many doves on the wires making them touch......and BANG!

    In Varanasi we were told that quite some monkeys die from hangling on the wrong "trees"....

    So keep that in mind and be careful!

    Macaques in Garh Palace

    A Gathering of Monkeys

    Monkeys were a frequent sighting in Northern India. There were basically two kinds ~ langurs and macaques. Langurs have long tails and puffy, soft-looking fur framing their faces. . .they are docile. Macaques are smoother. . .and meaner. :-p One of the macaques at the Garh Palace ever ran after an Indian women who was visiting with her family. It grabbed for her leg, then scampered away when she screamed. Exercise general caution around them.
