We start our visit in the desert citadel of Jaisalmer, the Golden Fort. Our journey on through Rajasthan will take in a visit to a Bishnoi village and the privilege of witnessing an opium ritual; a stepwell dinner illuminated with thousands of oil lamps (presided over by a hymn-singing yogi); the magic that is Lake Pichola in Udaipur; helping out in a lesson at a local school; and a visit to a far-flung palace that has lain untouched for decades because of a family feud.
Whether in towns, citadels or villages, the Rajasthani people welcomed us warmly and were as curious about us as we were about them.
