Warrens of Jaisalmer

Back alley

Jaisalmer’s fort isn’t just a relic or tourist trap. It’s a living fort, with dusty alleys and cattle dung and people going about their days.

Don’t trust that bull for a second.

    I think I saw that same cow.

    Also, I think it’s really sad that the fort is so tourist-ized that the foundation is literally crumbling under it. The cow belongs there … all those other hotels and whatnot don’t. You get ‘em, cow!

    You’re absolutely right that it isn’t a sustainable situation. Unfortunately, it seems unrealistic to simply evict the entrepreneurs and hoteliers catering to the biggest economic engine around.

    Better and more sensitive tourism habits would be a good start. Perhaps a more strict licensing scheme for tourism operators and caterers? Higher taxes devoted to historic renovation and upkeep? More strict enforcement of illegal construction? Codes to regulate infrastructure?

    I have a better idea: Attack of the cows!

    I think you should come back to India to lead them. I will document your campaign in video.
