Navigating Jaisalmer Streets

Leaving the fort, we took a tuk-tuk towards the inner city.

The streets in this part of town were full of pedestrians, motorbikes and cows and so narrow they were not passable by cars. It was a Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, as the skillful — or crazy — tuk-tuk driver whizzed through the congestion.

Raj said that the streets were narrow by design, for shade.

We finally came to a stop when the streets narrowed to where even the tuk-tuk couldn’t continue.

Our next destination was the famous Patwon Ki Haveli, a short walk down the street.
