Outside Pushkar, India, there are two small mountains. If you get to the top before sunrise you’ll have a beautiful view over the city as it awakens. One early morning, I joined two new-found friends from my guesthouse and climbed to the top. For hours we watched the colors change over the city’s skyline.
I love the areas just outside a city. While everyone else is trying to cram themselves into the center of town, the areas on the edge of the city limits have their own special character. It is not the city anymore, but it’s also not completely outside it. People pass by, but they very seldom stop. Spend some time exploring the outskirts of the city you're in.
