... We walked past a store and a man called out to us and said "Hello, can you please give me an opportunity to rip you off?" Just walking the streets is fascinating here. Sandstone is quite soft so most of the buildings have havelis which is the intricate carvings on all the exteriors. The streets are very narrow though.

... in the sand dunes. Camel riding is fun but painful on the thighs and it was HOT. Like well over 100 degrees hot. Apparently they offer longer camel treks; 3, 4, 5+ days of riding camels and sleeping in the desert. Why anyone would choose that choice is beyond me. We shared a bottle of Indian red wine with our new friends while we watched sunset and then settled into our uncomfortable sleeping mats on the sand while swatting ...
