A bunch of us set out on a Friday night by bus from Ahmedabad at around 9 PM to go to Jaisalmer and spend the night in the desert, away from architecture, away from city life.
After a night well spent by playing all sorts of games one can play in a bus, disturbing every other person around, we were arriving close to Jaisalmer when a local man in the bus happened to ask us about our plans and how we intended on getting around there.
Having absolutely no clue as to what we were going to do next other than the fact that we wanted to spend the night in the desert we told him so. He immediately asked us to get off the bus and come with him in the car which somehow happened to be waiting right near the moving bus saying he could arrange the tour for us. Shoving aside our suspicions that we might be getting kidnapped we got off our bus and into the car. The car luckily wasn’t meant for kidnapping as it took us safely to a tourist agent’s office who charted out a plan for us at 1000 Rp per person for the weekend excluding food.
