Rob bit better today after laying low yesterday. Off early again across the desert for Jodhpur.

Long bumpy ride with 1 stop. Arrived hotel after 2pm, WelcomHotel, good sized rooms with king bed.Quick lunch and afternoon Village Safari by Jeeps to watch opium water demo at old villager's home. Quite interesting to see how the farmers live with large family in single room home. Also cowshed out back with milking cow.

Then back on Jeeps to Khichan bird sanctuary, demoiselle cranes migrate from Siberia, spent 45 mins here whilst sun setting, quite interesting.

Back in the Jeeps for a bumpy ride to a pottery to watch a young potter at work. By now its dark, so crazy drive by Jeep back to hotel for late dinner. Rob still on restricted diet, rice & potato.
