ジャイサルメール 砂漠の風は何を囁く?

My junior came to india n we went to jaisalmer together :)
I joined in the middle of her journey.

I took train from delihi to jaisarmel. 
Actually I tried to book but I couldn't have reservation because it was in Holi season and very crowded. Even the date of departure I was just on waiting list.
I tried to get the ticket at counter only for foreigners but I couldn't find the counter... and what is worse, I misunderstood the station! The train leave from old delihi station but I went to new delhi station. I was looking for the train number to find the platform but I couldn't find the number. Then someone talked to me and I realised I was wrong. He tried to invite me to the travel agency... that is typical story among japanese backpackers.... I ignored him and rushed into auto riksha, managed to arrive at old delihi station. I found the train number! Then went to the platform but it says different number... I checked other plat form and finally found my train. But still I don't have ticket!! I just got into cheapest sleeper class, lied at empty seat, pretend to sleep and ignored the officer once. But he  tapped me several times and I woke up. He said come down. It was between the stations so I thought at least he will not take me out.  He asked me to show ticket. I pretend not to understand. He kept asking me my ticket. I said I lost it. Then he lead me to empty seat n I paid... eventually I got a ticket inside!! It was kind of impressive journey... I'm somehow sturdy like wildflowers.

Camel safari was great.
We Left the accomodaton like tent at 6pm. We were riding on the camel, seeing ladies carrying water in big pots.
Saw sunset on the sand dune.
On the way back I was soooo impressed by the sky with twinkling stars. Many many stars. I've never seen such many stars!! 
It was very quiet and I hear the voice of breeze, saying live your life with your own freedom.


@Gadisar tank 
Since jaisarmel is suffering from lack of water, there is a tank.  Even now they rely on that.

Around 3000 ppl have lived inside until now. Some rooms have tiles from western countries like Holland. 

@Patwon Ki haveri 
House of Patwa family, who prospered with gold and silver works.
Every wall, door are attached with minute relief.
Outside wall is made of stone with caved with beautiful patterns!

Whole town is golden. Not onlu the King but his predecessor made their houses using  golden sand, following the King's golden facilities 

Wind power plant is also seen there. It's famous for rajasthan.
