India - Jaisalmer - Jaisalmer Fort


Jaisalmer is sometimes called the “Golden City” because the sandstone used in its architecture gives the city a golden tinge. The main attraction, the Jaisalmer Fort, is a living fort and about a quarter of city’s population still lives inside the fort. I was planning to explore the Thar Desert on a camel safari, but came down with food poisoning and spent a couple of days recovering so that I could continue on to my next destination.
