As soon as you leave the "peace" of Jaisalmer Fort, you find the first shopping area which is called "Gopa Chowk". Here the hustle and the noise is normal and closing your eyes you can picture the bikes and traders. We saw, how could we not, the "auto-rickshaws" (taxis). There was a small bustling square and a very curious establishment: called "BANG SHOP" nationwide, and are authorized by the Hindu Government and there are a few scattered throughout the country, especially in tourist cities. They are like the "coffee-shop" in Amsterdam. You can eat, drink and smoke products made with "bang", a derivative of marijuana. Here we see the local owner scratching his feet .. which doesn't really attract customers!
