More sights from the bazaar area of old Udaipur.

Behind the vegetable sellers was a row of houses. I liked the colors of the houses and the scarfs.

Bangles — the round, rigid style of bracelet — more than just a fashion accessory, although they are definitely that, they are the sign of a married Indian woman. It’s considered unlucky for a married woman to have bare arms. Bangles are sold everywhere, even in the most unlikely places. More is better. I’ve seen many a woman covered from elbow to wrist in them. Check out the bangles on the ladies at the wedding I attended last November.
