We left Pushkar after breakfast and travelled to Fort Khejarla. Khejarla is a tiny village that has very very few tourists so we generated huge interest and attention. In the afternoon we walked through the village. I performed magic in the street and we were quickly completely surrounded by kids and adults who followed us to a local hindu temple a few kms outside the village.

One kid who had been hit by a car was limping slowly behind us and when we realized we stopped and waited for him to catch up. He was all smiles and told us about his life in the village. The people here are really welcoming and all they want is to have their picture taken with you. Trucks, cars and motorcycles stopped on the street at the sight of us.

One old lady got really upset and started screaming at Salud that she had not taken her picture so we had to go back and take some shots and show them to her.

We made a real bad decision to have a massage back at the fort...Oh boy was that not pleasant and we froze our asses off, no heating in the rooms. My masseur said all off and afterwards simply stood staring at me on the table, I guess he had never seen a white red haired guy before...what a scream....I thought his eyes were going to pop out of his

We grabbed a quick cold shower...brrrr.. before meeting the group huddled around a campfire they had lit for us in one of the towers of the fort.
