Even after all these days, I still could not agree with Ahmed, my dri­ver, on an opti­mal tem­per­a­ture in the cab. He loved the air con­di­tion­ing and the rare oppor­tu­ni­ty for him to cool down to the max­i­mum. I got a cold and some fever as a result. So my so far good trav­el mood got a lit­tle damper. Nev­er­the­less, I did­n’t let myself be put off and after suc­cess­ful­ly get­ting some med­i­cine, I trudged through the blue city, because there were many beau­ti­ful things to see here as well.

The size of the fortress was over­whelm­ing and dif­fi­cult to cap­ture up close. The palace with its muse­um and some old rooms told of a time long past. As in Jaipur, the view from the top of the city and the land­scape com­pen­sat­ed for the effort of the climb, which this time real­ly brought me to the edge of my strength. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I could not real­ly enjoy Jodh­pur with a drip­ping nose.
