Pushkar, a holy city surrounding a holy lake. This place is famous for the annual Pushkar Camel Fare, when thousands of camels are gathered here. It's a small town, very peaceful and quiet, which is due to the ban on rickshaw in these streets.
We travelled here for an overnight Camel safari into the desert.

My camel was called Shiva. Shiva was a horny devil, he kept sneaking kisses from the other camels and sniffing their bottoms at every opportunity.
