Priyanka, your pics bring back some beautiful memories of my Jaipur trip. We were a group of ladies (me and 4 others) and had such fun. My friend's post wedding youth party was held atop Nahargarh Fort and we had a blast in the chill!! I love Jaipur cuisine - they have awesome food there!! Esp. the Bengali mithai and kachoris! But we did not have time for Chowki Dhani:(!

Pics look great - shows the fun you had and so does the young fella! Which one is you?

Food as always looks is great! You rock, lady! Keep going strong:)

Ooops! Thanks for the entry to FIC, dear!

Priyanka, what lovely pictures and they reminded me once again what a glorious city Jaipur is. We spent some very memorable days there not too many years back, and I was amazed by how wonderful, and innocent, the people were.
I did find Chowki Dhani a bit forced, but I remember the food was quite good.
