      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

It really wasn't that interesting visually and I do have pics on my other camera, but I did manage to snap off a shot ( before getting yelled at) of the set of the Indian version of "Game of Thrones" called Ashoka, also a great surprise. I sat most of my time there watching the filming as the rubble was no interest to me. The story of the ghost town goes that the local magistrate (Raj?) would come to the ...

      ... horizon. Very beautiful but so quick compared to the slow sunsets further from the Equator ( not that we're that close here). Back to the camp area where a chap arrived with a bag of cold beers - most welcome - and Lilu and Samir were cooking dinner. A small selection of curries, rice and chapati. Just enough. Very peaceful sitting round the camp fire. We were joined by an older guy in his turban who sat and smoked beedis. Watched the night darken and stars come out - ...

      ... direction of City Palace, taking a stop for lunch at India's Old Coffee House. It was basic but a clean and efficient little cafe which made great omelettes. It was also very busy amongst the locals and tourists which is always a good sign. We hopped on a rickshaw to City Palace (we are gradually getting better at haggling a semi decent price) by this point we were out in the heat of the day and safe to say we were struggling a little... First we ...

      ... the fort was a stronghold to attack from as well as a refuge from the constant wars that took place over this area with its oft disputed control of a major caravan route. The first gate with its cobbled path inclines upwards in a zig zag towards towards the second gate and the pattern is repeated till the fourth gate. There the gate opens into a giant courtyard and, here, it become clear that this is a "living" fort for over 3000 people and ...
