Scene 1- Right next to Mehrangarh Fort
We took a tour of the massive Mehrangarh fort walking all the way and sneaking into the hidden sections of the fort.
We got tired and sat on the wall to take a break.
I was looking at the blue city while he was staring at the fort.
A stranger walked up and said, " You two seem to be on a journey. I like this frame how you are just sitting there and admiring the beauty and there is no conversation happening and everything is quiet."
The man said, " Do you mind if I take a picture of you both like this?"
We introduce ourselves and we end up having an interesting conversation (carefully strewn from the strangers end to not reveal his identity). Simply dressed in loose linen pants, cotton shirt, Jodhpuri half-jacket and a black hat, he narrated stories of his trips to Europe in impeccable english.
Curious we asked, " where are you from?"
The conversation went on from one topic to another. He now knows a lot about us.
"Wait you didn't tell us your name and who you are."
"Let's just say if you ever see your photo published anywhere you will know who I am." He bid good-bye and walked away.
