Going Kutch- part 1

A two day trip to Kutch was a dream coming true.It conjures  up images of stunning landscapes ,vibrant colours  ,  master craftsmen. and women  in heavily embroidered  clothes.Then there were movies like Mirch Masala,Refugee  and Lagaan  which  captured this land in all its glory.It is also the largest district  of India and has 969 villages.

After  an overnight stay in Ahmedabad,our group of five  set out for Hodka village  .It is about 400 km from Ahmedabad .Our stay was at Rann Visamo village stay.We were the only occupants and it was an unforgettable experience. There are ten mud cottages known as Bhunga and the interior is tastefully done up with  mirrors.This kind of mud and mirror decorative work is known as Lipan kam and is a traditional mural art.The rooms are spacious.There is an open dining room which is also decorated with colourful panels.We were served simple vegetarian food.We sat up till late looking at the stars and soaking in the ambience.DSC07451P3230073P3230076image (11)image (10)
