Jetzt haben wir die Wüste definitiv hinter uns gelassen.
Ranakpur liegt mitten in den Wäldern und hat ein entsprechend mildes, „schweizerisches“
Klima. Die riesige Jain-Tempel-Anlage liegt voll im Grünen

ganz Indien. Dort waren wir wieder …
The southern part of Rajasthan is the real thing. Between Udaipur and Jaisalmer is so much

We had a wonderful time at this resort. Swimming and playing cards at the pool. Great cookies for breakfast and in the evening a nice dinner in the garden and the lawn...delicious our feet on the cool grass (and a bear). The room was large, clean and stylish, the bathroom spacious. Outside the season they have good deals. We loved it.
