After a restful stay in Mumbai, I flew to Jodhpur in Rajasthan. At Mumbai airport I met up with some of the people I was to be spending time with in the desert and at Jodhpur airport we met with the rest of the group. In four cars we 14 Australians drove into the desert for 3 hours to the city of Nagaur, (which lies halfway between Jaipur and Jaisalmer), to attend the annual Sufi Festival in the Ahhichatragarh Fort.
The entire event was magical. The atmosphere in the fort and the historic setting was like something out of a movie. We stayed in beautiful tents and all food, drinks and entertainment was provided as part of the event.
