The next day we started off a bit late. Jaisalmer Fort is the only living fort, it has families living in it. We kept walking around, visited the Jain temples which are painstakingly carved by hand, so intricately to perfection. We entered a small art studio, and this gentleman kept staring at us, we smiled. I initiated a dialogue, which continued into a discussion and very soon we were just sitting in his studio, with no track of time, having some black tea and talking about am artist's life. He was an artist who's had shows all over the world, housed in this tiny space that he called his studio. While he sat on the floor and painted he showed us how he got natural pigments only, to do his art, his brushes, equipments, favorite paintings from his pandoras box. And he said,"I dont always connect with people, but I'm glad we met. I had a great time." He wrote our name in a miniature size on a paper and signed it, and said hope we meet someday again.
We walk alot more in the fort, and walked down to the havelis, we walked passed houses, narrow lanes, and visited a couple of havelis that were in our itenary, the best one was Patwon ki Haveli. I'd suggest walking around, as you explore the Natmal Ki Haveli, Salim Singh Haveli.
