    This would be our second time taking an AC3 train, which is a tiny bit more run down than AC2, with the main difference being that they fit 3 beds into a space normally reserved for 2. We got the top bunk each time, which we were grateful for, but sitting up was next to impossible with the reduced room. Scheduled for a 530am arrival, we get in …

    Cow's Revenge
    Made my way down to Ghandi Chowk shopping strip for a bit of a wander and wandered onto my first pile of manure. I had taken pains avoiding every manure minefields in every city and this just broke my record. This was no tiny little poop. It was a heap of sticky playdoh ...

    ... the little things can be less impressive. However, I will say that the fort is one of a kind and seems to offer something new. We wandered the Bhatia market and found some Gulab Jamun for Jade (Indian desert) and picked out some street food for a lunch snack. We chose samosas which were quite spicy but delicious and pretty addictive.

    ... chew on a bush reminded us we were merely passengers! Lucy got Simon the sexpest camel (he had a bell round his neck so they could find him as he frequently wandered off chasing camel tail lol). When we stopped for lunch/general breaks from the desert sun they set the camels free after tying their legs together which meant they wandered off in a highly comical Michael Jackson style moonwalk. They would still ...
