The cab ride to the Manvar Desert Camp and Resort from Jaisalmer was a short one. Post a delicious and sumptuous welcome lunch of Rajasthani delicacies (including the famous Daal Baati Choorma and Lal Maas), I was lead to my uber-luxurious tent. And, while I cannot describe it enough, the pictures speak for itself. Next in the 2-day itinerary was a jeep safari over the sand dunes of the Thar desert. The sand and sun never looked better! We also had a stopover at a local blacksmith's house, where he made Chillum and showed us how to smoke this local cigar. The jeep safari continued into the shifting dunes and we were surprised by the sneak-peaks of the wildlife, such as the Nil Gai and sprawling feathery companion in the Peacocks, along with the thrilling dune roller coaster ride. And the antelopes hopped beside us! The sky never looked so clear and beautiful. Finally, before my return to the camp, I took an interesting camel ride on the camel named Rattu. The evening brought a splendid cultural performance on a stage set between the tented camp. The hues of the desert sunset just added more dramatic effect to the amazing enjoyable evening.
