Nestled around an ancient holy lake lies the town of Pushkar in Rajasthan. The serene town seems to have a different pace of life compared to the rest of India. Cars are not allowed in the narrow, bustling streets, so travellers have to walk into town to reach their hotels. Arriving at night may not be the best idea, as the streets are uneven and labyrinthine. Friendly locals directed us to our hotel, the Pink Floyd Guesthouse and Café, which was hidden in a narrow alleyway inside another narrow alleyway. There is no alcohol or non-vegetarian food allowed inside the holy town, so it is rather quiet at night. Special lassi and cakes made of bhang are readily available at almost every café in town, though.
