Jaipur displays a vibrant stream of colours amid its peachy ancient palaces. A city painted in pink would look unnatural in many places, but here on the edge of the desert, at an immense distance from the Western world both geographically and philosophically, Jaipur feels eternally serene. Pedestrians from all walks of life, seemingly from a mix of centuries, weave through the streets and bazaars amid a cavalcade of rickshaws and motorbikes, three-wheeled trucks and camels, all buzzing with a vibrant exuberance.
