The town of Jaisalmer is nice, with lots of great, intricate architecture; the lattice work is everywhere. The rest of the fort is actually a bazaar — to some extent, once you have seen one, you have seen them all. There are some Jain temples, though, which are impressive from the outside, although shut by the time we got there.

We eat food in the unpromising named “Shanti” restaurant, drawn in by the far more promising odour. It’s combination Nepali and India food, on the edge of the fort, with a view out over the desert. Best food so far by a long, long way.
