It’s scratching and yapping under the van. Come off it, puppies! Stop waking us up! Just because you’re cute, doesn’t mean…, eh! Cows stay quiet! We met many unexpected animals! Jaisalmer used to be a city of merchands and scavengers. They had a fort, built in the 12th century, and their main activity was to organize trade at the entrance of the desert. And sometimes they plundered caravans… So when those caravans were for another powerful region, with an army, they were attacking them as a punishment. And they were detroying everything! But as they were warriors, they had honnor. And when they felt defeated, they prefered doing what we call a “jauhar”, which is a collective suicide. Men were commiting suicide on the battlefield and women were setting themselves on fire inside the fort. It happened 3 times… Everywhere inside the fort it’s a touristic place, so very clean and neat. But as soon as we take the rampart walk… It’s disgusting! Marie has been weak! She bought a souvenir, what we usually never do. Just because the woman told her it was an association for less educated women, so they can work, etc… No, mostly to change mentalities. Women can also work. They are doing everything at home, nevertheless, they are not allowed to work… Good job from the saleswoman, she found Marie’s emotional chord ! Thar desert They are filling up with the water of the lake, then they will distribute it in the villages around. Marie decided she was the camels’ best friend! So she’s meeting then on the hill! It’s ok? Don’t you have too much? Stop it! You emptied the bottle! Look Mum, I’m protecting myself! Walk in the dunes. Well, in THE dune… It’s not a big desert, like we’ve seen in Iran. There is only one real sand dune and then it’s semi-desertic, they are some bushes. Little suprise in the morning, I think there are wild boar fighting close to the van. I’ll try to film them! He’s happy! What did you buy? Beers! Show me! I really bought beers! Otherwise you don’t let me in? All right, you can come in! Today we are visiting a temple devoted to rats! Let’s see what it is! We thought we saw something weird with the motorcycle temple, but this one is next level! Actually, it’s a saint hermit who predicted to a musician tribe that they will reincarnate in sacred rats. So those rats are the reincarnation of the musicians of this tribe! We are visiting a cenotaphe, which is like a mausoleum, a tomb. Inside there is a symbolic, very simple to understand. When there is a vertical tombstone, it’s a man. And for the woman, there is nothing! Next episode… This morning we arrived in the slum area. They have a little hut and it’s school.
