City Safari

Having seen camels, elephants, monkeys, and wild boars, you could be forgiven for thinking we were on an official safari.  But no, we are in the city of Jaipur (which is India’s 10th largest city) and these animals together with cows, chipmunks, various types of rat, dogs and goats are all just part and parcel of its population, all living side by side.  As a pedestrian, one of the greatest challenges comes from the large number of big cows (obviously a revered animal) that seem to roam freely everywhere but can be quite difficult to get past, especially in the narrow bazaars.  Amazingly, they seem totally unphased by the vast numbers of people and all the traffic including all the honking horns.  Presumably they have just got used to it?
