Jaisalmer is better known as the Golden City of India. It is also the Gateway to the Great Indian Desert Thar.
Covering most part of Rajasthan is the Thar Desert, which is the 18th largest sub-tropical desert in the world. The Thar Desert is approachable from cities like Jaisalmer, Bikaner, and Barmer.

I have been to some of the well known places in Rajasthan, many times, but this road trip gave an opportunity to witness the region from a wide perspective.

The most prominent tourist attraction of Jaisalmer is an urban living center. Around 3000 people reside within the walls of the Fort. There are houses, a large number of handicraft shops, guesthouses, restaurants, and temples.

It’s India’s National Day today. I have a holiday from work and time to reflect on what I have achieved with my students. It’s not as if they are speaking fluent English now,or even attending our little classroom regularly.
