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!

So we sealed the deal with a team high five and booked out bus to Jodhpur!

Our rooftop restaurant is starting to get quite chilly now but we are treated to a small firework display as the view is quite good here. Still I'm ready to get on that train now. Lord help us, the train has only 3AC and ordinary sleeper classes. We have managed to obtain 3AC but 2AC was bad enough. I suspect we are in for a tough nights and looks like our ...
... bags to see what we had in them, instead of them asking or signalling to have a look they were all just in a frenzy trying to get at the pockets and get the shoulders off our bags. After 10 mins spent swatting children off of us, we decided enough was enough and got the hell out of there before one of the kids got a damn good thrashing! From the village we only had a short ride to the sand dune where we would be staying for the night. Settled at our camp, we prepared our beds for ...
