    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.

    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!'

    ... The camel tour began at 3pm and there were 9 people in our group (including the 2 Colombians that we met the day before and booked our trip with). We were picked up from our hotel and driven about 45 minutes out of town. Along the way we stopped at a Muslim village which could have been interesting if it weren't for the fact that all the villagers saw us as a big, fat dollar sign. Immediately the children, who were darling ...

As we walked out of the station we saw a lad holding up a placard stating our hotel name on it (hotel Shahi) and the lad confirmed that he was our transport to the hotel. It turned out he is one of the owners sons and his name was Hemant. He blasted out some really good Bollywood music on the way to the hotel one tune in particular by ...

    ... was basic but nice, then back on the camel for a 1 hour ride back to the car. Today my bum certainly felt the ride, near the end we had the camels running, there is a bit of an art ride a camel at speed. Not sure if I could do this for a long distance.
