Udaipur wedding

I’m on my way to India as I write. This is going to be a good year for travelling. I’ve been skiing and eating Khachapuri in Georgia, visited Fidel’s Cuba, and Azerbaijan has gracefully granted me a visa.

However, right now Delhi and Udaipur are next stops. My friend Abhishek has invited me to his wedding. I am curious as to what an Indian wedding is like. What I know is that it is going to be in Udaipur, a city known for its palaces, and that it’s likely to be hundreds of guests. I also know that the weather forecasts says it’s going to be 42 degrees celcius. Hot hot hot. I bought a new linen suit, as I figured my dark woolen suits probably would be inappropriate both for the climate and colourful Indian wedding receptions.

Here is a short update photo:
