Windows of Hotel Khimsar Fort

This is our entry in Lost in Translation’s Black & White Sunday: Windows.

In November 2014, we were traveling in the Indian state of Rajasthan between Pushkar (site of the annual Camel Fair) to Phalodi (to observe Mademoiselle cranes), a distance of about 370 kilometers (230 miles).  To break up the trip, we stopped in Khimsar, where we had a jeep safari and stayed in the beautiful Hotel Khimsar Fort.  (For more on this story, you can read From Pushkar to Khimsar and A quick send-off from Khimsar.)

This photo was taken through a window in the restaurant (“dining hall”) of Hotel Khimsar Fort.  The image has been converted to black and white except for the stained glass windows visible through the ornate grill.
