Winter 2018


Udaipur is a popular tourist destination in India, known for its royal palaces and lakes. The city has a rich history and offers plenty to learn and explore, from the City Palace to the many tranquil places to sit and relax. One thing that stood out to me when I arrived was the prevalence of white in the color of the buildings. This consistency gave the city a sense of harmony, and it was a refreshing change after spending a few days in the bustling metropolis of Delhi.

One of my favorite moments in Udaipur was when we went on a sunset boat ride on one of the lakes. It was pure relaxation and bliss, watching the city slowly shrink into the horizon as we approached a small island with a castle on it. The sunset itself was one of the most vibrant I've ever seen, with the entire sky lighting up in shades of orange and pink. My whole family stood on the waterfront and watched it in awe as it fell dark.

As we took the boat ride back to the city, the view shifted from the colors of the sky to the lights along the coast. It was a strange feeling to see how vast and spread out the city was, and it made me realize just how much there is to explore in Udaipur.
