Off To The Palace…Polo Club Gathering For 400

Last night Jaykirti and I had to go to the palace again.  The life of an itinerant artist is very blessed here.  So I put on one of my two outfits for going out (always travel light here so I can go home with a full suitcase)   Just a small crowd of 400 had been assembled in the courtyard inside the palace , with huge lights patterns flowing over the building, the princess and her family in attendance (yes, readers, I met her again courtesy of Jaykirti) and we dined outdoors in the larger courtyard with waiters in white coats and gloves and red turbans.  The central raised platform with beautiful columns in the larger courtyard was for greeting officials and conducting business.  It's open to the sides and holds some wonderful relics of the Kingdom of Jaipur's past.  Lots of swords/guns/arrows displayed and the marvel is two very large silver urns which one of the Maharajahas took to England when he went…full of water from the Ganges.  So we had a blast and saw a number of Jaykirti's friends and I got my picture taken with a polo pony when we came in and with Jaykirti on the way out.  DSCN8317 DSCN8318 DSCN8325 DSCN8324 DSCN8327 DSCN8345 DSCN8337 DSCN8334 DSCN8338 DSCN8335
