Camel safari in Rajasthan

A couple of villagers having a smoke. The man on the left is actually the local "doctor", who treated my sprained wrist, as we squatted on the sand, by chanting, burning insense, and rolling small pebbles over my arm. I even went back for a second treatment the next day, although there wasn't time for the all-important third visit (which the locals said was absolutely vital for the process to be effective).
