The landscape became more barren and the roads bad. The 400 kilometers from Puhskar to Jailsalmer would be too far to complete in one trip, Ahmed said, and he didn’t want to drive in the dark. At night, the roads belong to the truck drivers. That would be far too dangerous for everyone else. He will have been right. On Indian roads, the law of the jungle prevails and no car wants to mess with a rickety truck and its tired driver.
So a deserted resort near Kihchan was the stopover on the way to Jaisalmer. The area is notorious for the cranes that rest here and are also fed by the inhabitants. Although I am a nature lover, this did not excite me much, since I myself come from a region where the cranes rest every autumn. So I just enjoyed the peace and the relatively luxurious accommodation.
