My driver for a few hours - Jammu

My driver for a few hours

Motor rickshaw is the best!

When you visit a rather big city without a map, and do not speak the local language, you have to rely on local resources. Where are the things to see? How to get there? I waved to a motor rickshaw and tried to explain the driver I wanted to see a few things in Jammu. I probably was lucky, the guy at least understood I wanted to see a few temples, the fort, etc. . . . We agreed for a price and time, and he drove me through the city, stopping when I asked, and stopping at the places he considered of interest: symbiosis! He did not speak English, but at least he told me the names of a few places. So we visited Jammu during three hours, in late afternoon and beginning of night. Added to this there is some fun, sitting in a rickshaw, smelling the petrol, being rocked on the humpy streets, trying to speak with the driver. . . .
The proud driver, at the end of our tour is on the first picture; the rickshaws have curtains, if you are in need of privacy. . . . (picture 2)

Five dollars for three hours.
