    great character but don't expect to sleep. We had the best room in the house but shared the balcony with an old boiler that needed stoking all hours of the night by a boy who didn't quite appreciate that rattling an ash pan two feet away from my head might perhaps disturb my sleep! The boiler didn't even work long enough to provide a warm shower

    Sandstorms and sandcastles

    ... black as power in the whole city had gone down and first the sand, followed by a proper rain storm with sheet lightning.

    After marvelling at the forces of the natural world, I began to worry about where my dinner was coming from. Thankfully the hotel next door appeared to have a back up generator (I believe this is what they are called), surely all the tourists in all the town would be camped out there and we could all enjoy some warm beers in a blitz ...

    Camel trek in the desert

    ... no obligation. The hotel we picked was nice and there are so many hotels here that they are cheaper than a portion of chips in England. Our hotel was inside but on the edge of the sinking fort.  I call it a sinking fort because its sinking. Its sinking because Jaisalmer use to have to conserve water badly but then they got piped into the mainland supply and now they waste water like everywhere else in India and its all seeping into the ground causing the fort to ...

    ... music blaring, but they disappeared and left us riding along watching our shadows in the sand. At one point a young lad walked up to us carrying some wood - apparently for our camp fire and part of his duty was to meet us half way round and take photos with our camera. A good tourist wheeze and he took some nice shots. He must be pretty good with a huge range of different and often fancy cameras as he dealt with ours very easily. He tramped off into the sand heading for ...

    Day 31 - Sand for breakfast...

    A travel blog entry by indianadventure on Aug 16, 2014

    ... headed straight back to the guest house for showers, to remove the layer of grim from our skin. All showered and clean we felt like new people. Feeling slightly fatigued we just had lunch in the guest house then had a lazy afternoon to avoid the midday heat. Feeling fresh and rested we headed down to the lake to explore the gattes and temples. The photos of this such lake look absolutely stunning so we were all quite excited to see it in person. Unfortunately the ...

    " I met a traveller from an antique land

    Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone

    Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,

    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,

    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,

    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read

    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
