A distance of around 350 km, taking normally around 7 hours. Depending strongly on the road conditions but these turned out are pretty good in Rajasthan.
Arun promised a surprise during the trip to avoid us falling asleep I would expect.
Turned out that we would visit on the the many Haveli's in Rajasthan.
According to wikipedia a Haveli is a private mansion in India or Pakistan. Many of them are no longer serving as house to the owners and slowly are recognised for attracting tourists.
So before lunch we stopped to visit a Haveli in one of the villages.
As photographer the first challenge as we were not prepared, meaning I didn't know what to see and what would be interesting to capture.
So mainly tried to capture the content which is quite impressive as you can see.
In the afternoon made one more stop to see the use of the round houses I saw all along the road. And to give the driver some rest as we got the impression he needed it.
Most of the time we spend managing the large crowd as there were many kids that wanted attention and wanted to be on the photo.
Sheena had a hard time to keep all her bangles and other items as the ladies were quite interested in getting them.
After leaving we had one more stop have a view on the sunset and see if it would be great. Turned out not to her this evening, so no nice shots from up the dune.
Main result was some small balls (assume seed) sticking to my socks.
Looked like they had some kind of hooks and pins as it was difficult to remove them and felt almost as if it were small needles.
Arrived in Bikaner just before it got real dark.
Nice hotel which was build to look colonial style, so much younger than the look would do believe.
First opportunity to review pictures around dinner at the hotel.
