An Indian Experience: Day 11

Day 11

Jodhpur’s Best

 

Part 1: To Eat or Not to Eat

Hasn’t everyone dreamt of the land of sweets? That’s one dream come true in Jodhpur. You name it, they’ve got it: from Italian to Indian to Chinese, and all around the globe. Today I had so much though, and it was still not enough.

  1. Poha: A popular Indian breakfast dish; so popular in my family that I think I may have POS: Poha Overdose Syndrome.
  2. Chocolate Hershey’s Kisses
  3. Dosa: An explanation given to me by a friend when I was in second grade: (and it’s stayed with me forever) Indian Pancakes.
  4. Homemade Biscuit Cake
  5. Hershey’s Cookies and Cream Bar
  6. Pani Puri: Jodhpur ki shaan, Jodhpur ki jaan, Pani puri aur paan! Which means: “Jodhpur’s pride, Jodhpur’s life, Pani puri and paan”
  7. Butterscotch Ice Cream
  8. Chocolate and Mango Pastry
  9. Pav Bhaji: my favorite Indian dish

 

However, I missed out on the actual sweets, like jalebi, rasgulla, gulab jamun, ladoo, etc. (Yes, my goal here is to bring water to your mouths.)

 

Part 2: For the First Time in Forever…

 

…it rained. The roaring pit-pats on the shade aroused my curiosity. Because it had not rained since I’ve gotten here, I was astonished when I noticed the streets below getting wetter and wetter by the minute. To witness the rain, I stepped outside into the balcony where the aroma of rain hit me. It was beautiful: the freshness in the air. The scent one can never forget.
