Jaisalmer: Final Images

Jaisalmer Fort at sunset

This afternoon we went back to town (our hotel is about five kilometers outside of town) for a short walk in an area we hadn’t previously covered.  We were not within the walls of the fort but, instead, went to a couple of havelis and then up to the roof of a hotel for a cool drink and a sunset view of the fort.

During our walk through the market we came to a stall where a gentleman makes an Indian snack mix every day.  It’s nice and fresh and many of us made purchases after tasting his crunchy, yummy treat.

The havelis were, not surprisingly, different from those we have seen in other parts of Rajasthan and were even more ornate and gorgeous.  One that we entered is still occupied by multiple descendants of the original builders but they have turned much of the front portions into souvenir shops to try to generate income with which to maintain the buildings.  We did our part.

A final evening dining outside by the pool.  A bit breezy but very pleasant.
