When I was really young and people talked about deserts, I found the idea of a dry, sandy land where only cacti grow, very fascinating. Visiting Jodhpur has been on my bucket list ever since and when I finally got there, it was everything I imagined and more!
There was the hot yellow sand, blistering heat and so many camels! But there were a lot of things I hadn't been expecting. I expected that Jodhpur would be sparsely populated and you'd have to walk miles to encounter a live human being. I guess that's the image you have when you rely on movies as legitimate sources of information! But the city was teeming with local folk, carrying on with their life in this hot desert land.
What I was really taken in by was the clothing of these true-blue Rajasthanis - they dress in vibrant colours and traditional attire, and I just couldn't stop staring! Ah Jodhpur! What an experience! So unforgettable!
