Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st March 2011
Theres not much more to say about Jodhpur – its an incredibly busy place with motor bikes, rickshaws and horse carts everywhere, with the occasional camel thrown in. Traffic at busy road junctions is a nightmare and pollution everywhere.
The side streets are as dirty as I have seen anywhere with open sewers and even open toilets at the road side. You can tell Im not over-impressed with the place, yet, like Marrakech, it has a timeless charm about it too.
Most of the other sights are out of town and in the heat I couldn’t really be bothered to trail miles and miles to see more of the same, and so I have simply settled down to relax in the guest house with the occasional stroll around the surrounding markets.
It is incredible but at 6pm I am now packing my bags and getting ready to head for the station where I will be catching the 22:30 Jaisalmer Delhi Express, due to arrive tomorrow morning at 11:05. Thereafter to the airport and to home, via Dubai.
