Where I Slept: Thar Desert #2, India

That Desert, India

Thar Desert, India | 25 December, 2006 | $10 (Camel tour)

Slowly waking up on a sand dune while the sun rises in the distance, trying to stay warm under a heavy, smelly camel blanket made for a special Christmas morning. Christmas night was the same as the last—our small group sitting around the fire, eating dinner and listening to our guides sing folk songs.

In all honesty, riding a camel all day is fairly monotonous but I’m glad I did it once. More photos of the desert can be found in the gallery.
