It was the Chai

The day before yesterday or was it the day before that? (it's probably the heat) I traveled from Bikaner to Jaisalmer, a village near the Pakistani border. It is in the middle of the desert, yet the temperatures are bearable because of there is blowing a strong wind.
I checked in at Fifu's guest house, I already seen this guesthouse at hostels.com. A very nice thing at Fifu's guesthouse is that they have a roof terrace where you can sit for hours, nice fresh air but also a perfect view of the fort of Jaisalmer. Very nice in the evening with all the lights.
The day after I still had a stomach still which felt like 24 hours in a rollercoster. But still I visited the fortress of Jaisalmer.
Today I feel a lot better and travel to Jodhpur, the second largest city of Rajasthan. On many pilgrims come to visit a temple, a colorful procession on foot, bike, motorcycle, car or whatever you can imagine even more to get to travel. Pilgrims with beautifully colored garments and flags travel huge distances to come to this temple. Also many shoes. After the temple visit is the usual you discard your old shoes, hundreds of shoes along the side of the road. Many of these pilgrims also visit the fortress of Jaisalmer. This fort is at 150 level and is breathtakingly beautiful. Also in many places a beautiful view of Jodhpur, the blue-colored city of Rajasthan. Here I am again a sightseeing, some like to take my pictures, ask my name or find it cool when I shoot them :-)
