Chittor’s tiny market is a sea of brilliantly-coloured merchandise in a drab land.
If it weren’t for the English sign and lack of camels, it appeared as if a group of nomads came out of the desert and set up camp.
No camels, but there was a horse though, and this hunter. The horse looked as if it might be happy wearing some of these brightly coloured clothes but the hunter didn’t.

This is a gorgeous series! Did you do any shopping?
I love markets but hate actually shopping and bargaining. In this market I was content just to be wandering through their colourful world.
Oh, the haggling – I hear you. Beautiful marwari horse with those pricked ears stealing the show behind the tents! I’d love to see one one day…
How amazing, those colours just leap off the page, you transported me halfway round the world with this wonderful post! 🙂
For us it was exactly half-way around the world – 21 hours to fly there, and it didn’t make any difference if we flew east or west. Being transported by a mere post seems like a much easier way to go. I glad you enjoyed the trip!
Love the colours!
The contrast between the grey land and the brilliant ‘tents’ was quite magical.
