    Me, my camel and the endless Thar

    ... The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:

    And on the pedestal these words appear:

    "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare

    The lone and level sands stretch far away"

    ... we are literally next door to the ancient temple.

    It's 2.15pm and our room is still not ready. We put our bags in the luggage store and leave for the desert. We pass by traditional villages and nomad encampments on the way. Cattle and goats are wandering all over the road, the drivers take no notice and veer around them. After an hour we arrive at Sam Dunes...the touristy place. OK, 25,000 probably was an exaggeration but the place is thronging. ...

    ... ourselves from the fridge in the kitchen and left them an I.O.U.

    We spent our first days exploring Jaisalmers 900 year old yellow sandstone fort; wandering aimlessly through its narrow, mazy streets and alleyways. The fort is a charming and romantic little place with crumbling sandstone buildings, hindu temples at every corner and large havelis with ornately carved archways, doors with gilded frames. Amazingly the fort is home to around 4000 inhabitant and about ...

    ... It really wasn't as bad as I had imagined. I was surprised there weren't more people moving through the train selling food. We only had a couple. One selling chai and another selling stuffed, fried donut type things. I don't normally make a habit of buying snacks on trains. But apparently these are really good, so I tried one of the savoury donuts. It was so good! It had a thin layer of curried lentils inside. All for just 12p! At one station, a train heading in ...

    Jaisalmer - the "golden city" (now with camels!)

    A travel blog entry by tdfitz on Apr 13, 2013

    ... pass a pickup that carried over twenty people front and back and passed us at well over 90 mph. Where was the fire I thought? Maybe someone was bit by the aforementioned cobra. As the miles separated the two cities, the landscape changed from rock and plentiful trees to barren sand dunes with not a bush in sight. The area around Jodhpur reminded me of the desert area between Arizona and California, a drive Amy and I have done almost a thousand times. As we near ...
