    fair enough! I'll start thinking up stuff to tell you all about Ireland then. I'll do up a blog entry soon so keep watching that spot! Anything particular request?

    I went on a 4 day vacation to Udaipur and Mount Abu, it's in western region of India in Rajasthan.

    Here are some pics to share. Once all get uploaded, i'll post more. These are of the places I visited in Udaipur city.

    1) This picture shows the rising Sun. Many Hindu rulers used to worship Sun god.



    2) An elephant carving at the entrance.



    3) An arch at the entrance.



    4) This equipment is an ancient way for making rose water. You will see a furnace and this huge pot, inside which there are rose petals and water. The manner of making rose water is, that when petals and water boil, condensation happens and the water that distills is gathered in another pot, which is later used as rose water.



    5) View of the City palace of Udaipur from Pichola lake



    6) This bench is inside the garden known as Sahelion ki badi. It was made for the Kings daughter, where she would come with her friends.



    7) Shield & Sword at the entrance



    8) A statue of Maharana Pratap and his horse called Chetak. This horse is considered very loyal and courageous. During the battle, when Chetak got injured with one leg missing, he took his master to a safe place before expiring. He jumped a 22 ft long empty stretch between two small hills.



    9) This image (in black) is showing how the battle was fought, before Chetak got injured.



    10) Picture of a China rose.



    11) This is also a very ancient way of making Sugarcane juice, it is no longer practiced. The place that we were visiting kept these as attraction for the visitors and to show them how things were done in those days.

    The bull will be moving in a circular motion and will make the wheels turn, the cane is then put between the wheels and crushed to make the juice, its then collected in a pot and later served in glasses.



    12) Outside you could also go for a camel ride. Camels were the common means of transport in early days and in some villages, I believe this will still be the means of transport. The people with turbans you see are the locals (Rajasthani's ) who make their living by such rides.





    13) A puppet show




    I will post more images, as I have tonnes of pictures

    Thank you guys

    In continuation here are some more pictures from inside of the City palace

    1) This is the place where the Rani's (queens) would get ready. Notice that the walls and the ceiling has mirrors. The red coloured material hanging from the ceiling is a fan, and the string coming out of it (from the center) was used to move it; some maid would sit outside of the room and pull the string to move the fan.



    2) This is a place for the Rani's to lounge around on a swing.



    3) This is the waiting area, where the Rani's would wait for the Raja (king) after getting ready.



    4) This is the chamber of a king who had polio. Although, he was married he never really live like a married person, and his needs were simple.

    Here are some of the photos I have taken- mostly in KY :They are basically all natural pictures, landscapes, etc.



















    (that's my dog, Jake )






    They aren't very good but they capture Kentucky well, I think.

    Madhuri, those are very fascinating pictures from India. That palace is so ornate!

    AdoreroDio, I really like those landscape shots. I couldn't figure out what the last picture was, though.

    It's sort of abstract but it's a walk way- with gravel, grass, and concrete.
