We arrived at Ajmer train station at half past two in the morning. We knew that Pushkar was on the other side of the mountain in Ajmer, about a 20 minute drive away. After a traumatising rickshaw drive through the curvy mountain roads we arrived at Pushkar. We are staying at hotel everest in the midle of this small town. Today we got to witness a hindi festival. There were parades all over town and all over India. Here in Pushkar the parades consisted of a curious blend of traditional Indian folk music and kids dancing to intense techno music. The music is loud and the dancing continues until midnight under the full moon.
