Once, the greenery towards my right, ends, the next route is guided by poles with 3 colors on it. Just identify this pole on the right side of road and continue. At some distances gaps, such poles are not available, hence on the ground towards the left side of the road, they have marked with tractors tyre markings.
Continuing straight without any deviation. I encountered a cross roads with small 4 pillared hut thing. The road sign/direction sign available here has lost its original charm due to heat, wind and dust. Palasva is straight in the direction of my bike facing. Towards right direction of the bike, in other words, backwards of the camera, it goes to Adesar. I continued straight towards palasva. The directions are written in Gujarati, however one can easily read it, if hindi is known well.
Continued further on the designated road strip following the ground tractor tyre markings. It was time to talk to the nature. Around 3 PM i reached the edge of the sanctuary towards Palasava village. Leaving behind the vast frontier was a melancholy moment for me. The last 4 kms journey seemed very difficult as it was more sand than dry land. One has to be very careful in riding here.
Once i excited the village palasava, it was a happy feeling that i conquered the journey all by myself without any problems and it was a glory moment to pat on my own back for the courage i had taken. Unraveled with my own fears, worries, timidity, etc. There stood a man with his mighty bull, The new man, perhaps!!
The desert heat had left me very dry and steamy. I Continued the journey towards Bhuj on the highway. At a dhaba, i had lassi. Felt really good to cool myself down and also the tasty lassi was fantastic. Around 6:30 PM, i reached Bhuj. The city was busting with alot of crowd. I straight away headed towards Swamy Narayan temple to check if stay is available. There was some event going on in the temple and hence i could not get a comfortable room for my own.
Further started to search for couple of dharmashalas for cheaper stay. 2 dharmashala i visited near to the bus stand had no rooms for lesser prices. Upon checking with auto folks, i was informed to look for sagar guest house, which is just 50 meters from bus stand. They had rooms for 400 INR per day. The rooms were not great, but neither bad, including the rest room. Took the room with the only worry about not having hotel’s private parking for my bike. This kept me a bit worried while i was there for next 4 days. The day ended with a good taste of gola.. Which is very good in Bhuj.
