    Amazing 450 year old family haveli. Only 3 rooms in the haveli which is located within the old fort area. A very unique and special place to stay. Fabulous view from adjoining haveli.

    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 …

    Our first sight of Jaisalmer is breathtaking in more ways then one. We arrive on the late evening train and are immediately met by the taxi driver sent by our hosts from the Suraj Haveli. We are quickly loaded into an autorickshaw ,with a wonderful haunting soundtrack blaring from the oversized speakers we careen through the darkened streets at …

    Khuri lies forty-eight km SW of Jaisalmer. After Judith and I had been quoted a taxi fare of 1,200 rupees (about 12), Nepal said we were being 'taken for a ride!' Instead, his friend from the village, the Khuri taxi driver would do it for 800. Moreover, as taxis were not allowed into the fort itself, Nepal would accompany us all the way to …

    As we left to go back to camp, we were warned of an oncoming sandstorm that might come through and hit us, but after a little debating we said we'd chance it. In for a penny in for a pound....or a Rupee in this case. ...

    ... Kashmir off the list (too cold up there anyway) and head to Nepal a month earlier than planned. After walking the Annapurna Circuit, it would be time for Ben to head off. I will then come back to India and check out the Himalayan foothills around Rishikesh, Manali and Dharamasala.

    PS: The photo of Mehrangarh on the hill is not mine, I had to pull it off the internet. Somehow, despite all the times we stared up at the fort, neither Ben nor I actually took a photo of ...
