View Great Escape to the East! on Tam-Jo's travel map.
And so yet again the alarm goes off at a completely ridiculous hour for a crazy early train to Jaisalmer!! It was a six hour journey through the desert and some of the scenery we saw on the way was amazing. Raghu convinved all of us to hang out the open door whilst the train was moving at full pelt. Don't worry mothers...we were being held onto so it was "perfectly safe"! And it was great fun so totally worth the disregard for health and safety!!
Late afternoon we went to the lake in Jaisalmer to feed the (giant!) catfish. This is supposedly good karma so we fed them a lot!!
Dinner tonight was at the most beautiful rooftop restaurant. The views were incredible and the food was delicious (as it seems to be everywhere we go here)! There was live local music and we all got up to join in the dancing after dinner.
It was decided that a party was in order so back at the hotel we all piled into Ian's room after sneaking beers and rum into the hotel in our handbags!! I'm sure Ian later regretted offering up his room after many a drink was spilled, the seriously late finish to our antics, and the general state of his room after. We played (far too many) games of ring of fire and all ended up singing our own national anthems at some crazy hour in the morning. The rest unfortunately is a bit of a blur! I'm sure we were perfectly sensible though!?!
