A good journey

Dec 30, 2015
Mode of Transport: Taxi

From Jodhpur to Jaisalmer is approx 300 Km and took us about 4 hours to reach. En-route, we saw peacocks, nilgais, deers, roaming freely in the fields, which was simply fascinating for us, living in towns. We had our breakfast in a roadside dhaba in Barmer, which was pleasantly good and an enjoyable one.
