    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.

    Back at the train station, we had a 1 and a half hour wait for our train. Platform was busy and chaotic- people everywhere, kids everywhere, luggage everywhere and a monkey observing the scene from the footbridge above.... When the train arrived, it ...

I know that you have to take your vehicle off the road and hunker down until the sandstorm blows out, but I had no idea if my car would run after that - after all hatchbacks aren't build to run after getting sand all over their ...

    ... and disappeared into the night. We are camping 35 klm from the Pakistan border, and we are in the desert so choice of direction would clearly be important. We are told that within 20 klm of the border heavily armed military personnel patrol and are not particularly choosy about their targets.
