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

... homes and shops. The shadows and remnants of that grace and beauty are still there, but you have to look for it. One must be prepared to see beyond a lot. Garbage and cow **** everywhere. Narrow lanes with nowhere safe to walk, choked with motorbikes and autorickshaws blaring their horns constantly. Garish signs hawking everything from "English Wine and Beer" to camel safaris to pizza. Touts persistently harassing ...

... with someone I can only describe as a character, Ali. A chilled out Rajastanie rasta lad who cooked up a cracking little meal for us as he told us about his love woes about a lost American sweetheart....she clearly pegged it but we didn't have the heart to tell him.

Down at the lake we got the usual photo ...

... in India regardless of religious persuasion. The camel ride was about and hour and a half long, long enough I reckon but not too long. Up and over the dunes we went as the sun was heading toward the horizon which made for some good photo opportunities. We stopped along the way to collect firewood for the evening and my camel, "crazy and lazy", stopped for a munch every now and then. We had made the decision to camp under the stars, a tent option was available but hey, might as well ...

... including a deserted town) before saddling up the camels and trekking into the sunset with our two local guides. At twilight a delicious meal was prepared and we ate beneath the stars, facing towards the Pakistan border on the western horizon. An experience we'll never forget! I hope you enjoy the photos, as we found ourselves akin to T. E. Lawrence and Dr. Henry Jones, Jr. in an unlikely double ...

A Series of Unfortunate Events

... us to a similar marble shop, again where he doubtless received some commission, and we left with yet more pointless marble stuff. We then went to the Mughal city of Fatehpur Sikri, where our disappointing guide refused to get rid of the sparkly pen men following us, compelled us to buy a blanket thing for 1100 rupees, pour some petals on it and then tie a bit of string on the wall which for some reason gave us three wishes, then accompanied us to his family's shop, where ...
