Jaisalmer

20120719-170954.jpg

Well here we are in the pool of our hotel in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan India, it was about 4 pm in the afternoon when this IPad shot was taken by my good lady wife, and yes; thats me floating (not a baby Whale escaped from some sea world theme park) 🙂 and the temperature was well over 47c.

We had just returned from our sight seeing trip of the Jaisalmer Fort and old town, it’s a fantastic old city with some beautiful old buildings, intricate carvings and fresco’s, and if you are a ‘Door’ lover like me then this is the place for you 🙂

Jaisalmer is a very famous trading city on the old Silk Road and the residents of this city have not seen any rain for the past three years so you can imagine how dusty it is, it is however a great place to visit and a must if your planning a trip to Rajasthan. The city is famous for jewellery, very fine hand made items in Gold and Silver, also Embroidery, the cotton, silk and Kashmir garments, scarves, dresses, rugs and bed linen is a feast of colour and a must to take home with you.

I hope to share more with you as the days go by and I will certainly upload many images when we return home.

Namaste from India
