10:00 departure this morning - A very gentlemanly start.
Unfortunately, with all the bread, rice, potatoes and beer my weight is piling on. This is everything I gave up to lose weight in the first place.
I am not going to stop drinking beer and the nan bread, and food is soooo tasty I cant give that up. Back to eggs and meat.
Breakfast Masula omelette - "Spicy green chiilies sir?" - "Oh yes!!"
Oh Sod it, I will lose the weight when I get back.
My journey is now eastwards from Jaisalmer to Jodhopur on highway 114. I am now getting used to every animal sauntering across the road with no care in the world, trucks overtaking and filling all of the read - However, when things are common place they become the norm - Not saying that is right but it is now my norm. Stockbridge watch out!!
En-route I noticed a crowed had formed - It was the poling station, I went to see what was going on:
100's of names to vote on:
This is one of the candidates - MNBF
Mr Dhasmendre and I had a very interesting discussion about Indian politics - The language barrier was quite interesting but my questioning technique is getting better.
The road is punctuated by small towns and villages selling everything from pitchforks to lorry parts and vegetables to sweets. A bit like Aldi.
The next stop was the old fort at Jodhopur again aware-inspiring. The shear size and beauty was breath taking.
I went round with an audio guide that expanded the history from medieval times to current day - If you want to know more come out to India.
Time for a quick head-massage and a hair cut:
Supper and beer:
