A shot of our designated ride on some of the trips, to end this sojourn.
As mentioned before, vehicles of this size are not allowed in the city center of Jodhpur. So we had a small commute to the city gates, where we could hop on to this one. An amazing vehicle! Despite the relatively open and accessible cabin and completely lacking anything by way of seat belts and airbags (the idea indeed!), I actually felt quite safe inside. Despite being decades old (the steering wheel is on the left side of the vehicle), the engine was obviously well tuned by a well mechanic. I can only imagine that (replacement) parts for this vehicle have to be hand-crafted out of a forge or fashioned out of a milling machine or even a lathe. And there were no clouds of black smoke behind us while we hummed at a comfortable cruising speed.
