Parakeets are abundant on the hills around Udaipur.
After sunset, we drive around town and then head straight for "Aapni Dhaani" on NH (National Highway) 8 to catch a glimpse of Rajasthani folk music and savour a full fledged Rajasthani Thali.
Chetak Circle - named after Maharana Pratap's favourite and India's most famous horse. A busy cross-section in Udaipur.
At Aapni Dhani, we relish a Rajasthani meal in the traditional way...we sit on the floor and eat with our hands.
