We ve just got back from a 2 day camel safari - sleeping under a starry sky after a days riding. but no - we must be the only people in the world who go to the desert and it rains. not just pouring with rain but also a sandstorm. this is after we had decided not to go to the huts and to camp out under the stars!
it was quite funny really. i actually thought i was gonna die (but then remembered the 83 year life ahead of me). the torch light i was following with my pile of wet v.heavy bedding vanished as i tripped up. tom came to rescue me and we stayed the night in a hut. camels are quite uncomfy (respect to horse riders!)
and dont really do anything you tell them! we are very sandblasted now and about to get the train back to jodhpur to go on to udaipur. must fill up on lassis and eggs before we leave jodhpur! i must say the camel safari was great fun maybe this was because we had VODKA! after being officially dry for 2 weeks vodka was v.much welcomed! still veggie, we did have goat a few days ago and felt ill - i think my belly is shrinking!!! tom tapplys facial hair report: 2 weeks without shaving and i cant really call it a beard but he has hairs on his chin! i could count them if you like....! there are plenty of other people looking a lot worse - i have sand burn, cant quite call it a tan! much love to all xxx
