Jaisalmer is in the Thar Desert, near both the Pakistan border and the site of the recent Indian Nuclear test.

We came here mostly for the chance to go on a camel safari - the comfort factor of these beasts was a matter of considerable dispute. (Personally, I'd rather ride a saddle-less 'bike down a cobbled road than get on one of them again !)

The "Guesthouse" that we stayed in was inside, and part of, the fort itself - an old sandstone building on the parapets - great view....
