They told us that the sunsets in Udaipur, India, a city known for its 7 lakes, were special.
“The water here picks up colors after 5 pm that aren’t visible during the day,” they said. We believed them; but you have to see it for yourself to really comprehend this type of natural beauty. Pay close attention to the specific designs in the water – you couldn’t create those shapes and shades on your own without atmospheric inspiration. Each wave is like an intricate mosaic.
Udaipur is an absolutely stunning Indian city. In fact, the best day I’ve ever had in my life was in Udaipur. The sun woke me up in the morning, I visited my favorite palace, City Palace (the prettiest I’ve ever seen), I had an Ayurveda massage in the afternoon, a sunset cruise at dusk and a dockside, starry-skied dinner as my evening activity.
Dressing the part in India is a dream come true…floor length dresses, sheer textiles to beat out the hot sun and traditional Indian floral embroidery and patterns…I’ve never felt as languid and natural as I did while in India. Could you ask for more?
Here are a few photographs from the sunset cruise, and stay tuned for my Udaipur writeup on Forbes.;)
