Postcards From a Rajasthan Spice Market

In December my sons and I began a journey through India. We flew into Mumbai and from there onto Udaipur - the city of lakes where ancient palaces are now some of the finest hotels of the world, like an ancient and exotic Venice of the East in the southern region of Rajasthan. I had my heart set on exploring the spice markets. If I went back to India - which I’m not sure I will - it would be directly to the spices again. It was a dream for me, the smells, the timeless endlessness of it all was so captivating; just as I had imagined it.
