Travel Photo: A Jaisalmer Moment

There is something infectious about Rajasthan that keeps attracting me to it. While Jodhpur was unbelievable, Jaisalmer presented a different look that made me wish I stay there forever. The Sona Qila, Jaisalmer’s golden fort is the star attraction of this city along with the mighty Thar desert and hence my Jaisalmer moment is inside this fort while I was looking at the golden buildings in the horizon from it.

Elderly Rajasthani Gentleman and the Jaisalmer view
While I was listening to my audio guide and making my way through the fort, I noticed this elderly Rajasthani sitting by a window and grabbing a breath of fresh cool air (The humidity levels were stifling that day in Jaisalmer due to the rains). While my body seemed to appreciate the cool breeze, my mind seemed to appreciate the view of this man and the dry city landscape beyond. I made small conversation with him and during this I asked him if I could click his picture and like all hospitable Rajasthani people, he smilingly obliged and this is the output. Do you like this Jaisalmer moment of mine?
