Beautiful presented breakfast and I was asked if I wanted another omelet which of course I couldn’t refuse and said, “Yes please …”. The photo of the second omelet just doesn’t do justice.

Time to take the outdoor scenes that I took last night so that you can see the comparison in the previous entry.

After breakfast again, it was a 9am / 09:00 departure drive for a 5 hour drive through to Jaisalmer.
