ON THE ROADS - 28/12/06 -01/04/07

- This was in Chittor in evening when we were just checking out the town. I found this so cute "Banta" moving shop.

- There are some words which are typically from Rajasthan - "Joganiyan"- which roughly translates as " I don't care"

- Arms shop ( all decorative ones) before you enter Chittor.

- Before turning towards Jaipur-Ajmer highway , clicked these pics of far distand Aravali hills and pruned trees.....!

- Another shot.

- You find these unusual sights - our Road companions - 2 buffalo taking a ride in a truck.

Interesting pics! The ones those of Aravalli with bare tree trunks in the foreground are wonderful!

Do you know what kind of trees those are? Almonds? They seem to be fairly old.
Here we had snow all morning, now the sun's out and the snow on the branches is melting.

Very nice images...

Reminds of the Pune-Kerala roadtrip i've taken!

@Sigma - Thx
@Merisi - They are not Almond, they are wild Sangri trees typically from Rajasthan. People from Rajasthan they use the beans from this tree for food purpose.

@ Ash - Thanks for visiting & nice words. Been to your blog and it is very beautiful.

Thank you for your answer, the first time I hear of those trees (Prosopis cineraria, according to web sources).
Looking forward to new pictures! :-))

Thanks Merisi, infact I was thinking of calling my Uncle ( he is crazy knows all the scientific names)to check on Genus.So thanks to you for giving that info.

@ JV - Thx so much for visiting my blog. Yes I do travel almost every Month for small treks or new hideouts. Otherwise I am quite a grouch...lol...!
