Where I stayed
Greetings from Jodhpur - it's Friday evening and the hotel has - according a to the sign - a basement discotheque. Fantastic - a cold beer will soon be consumed - it's very much needed.
The pin points I've added to the map recently show my route over the last couple of days. I travelled 410 kms yesterday and 350 today. The riding has been very hard and my route has been in some remote and indeed isolated places.
My initial plan was to reach Rajasthan yesterday evening and enjoy a cold beer in a reasonable hotel. That went completely out of the window once I got within 30 kms of the border from Gurjarat. The bad road soon turned into a very bad road before turning into what I could hardly even describe as a road - terrible!!!!!!!!!!
After such a long hard day I was really looking forward to a cold beer, hot shower and a comfy bed. What I ended up with was a warm coke, dribbling cold tap and a dirty hard bed. The hotel was one of the worst I've ever stayed in. So bad in fact that despite my stinkiness I kept all my clothes on to sleep - boots included. As for the bathroom? Well that was so stinky I couldn't even open the door. I was glad - in more ways than one - that there was a sink by the bed.
Anyway, I left the dirty hotel in the dirty town and drove up the dusty road. After a few kilometres I saw a clean looking hotel with off street parking - typical!!!!
So today was another big mileage day and I was initially heading towards Jaisalmer but had to alter that plan given how bad the main road was. As a result I headed east in a follow my nose type route intending on making it to Jodhpur. This place, according to the map, has an airport and railway station so I was hoping a few good hotels to also choose from.
The first one I saw was perfect. Hot water, clean sheets, free wifi and the added bonus of the aforementioned discotheque. Result.
Anyway, Jaws2 has almost finished on the tv so I'll be off for some scoff and a beer before strutting my funky stuff.
I'll hopefully upload some photos later.
