Mehrangarh fort, jodhpur. i took this photo in 2005 during our travels around india. we spent our first few weeks there travelling around the desert state of rajasthan. mehrangarh fort sits atop a hill and is like a sandcastle rising from the desert plains. at the time, richard gere was the face of a visa card tv campaign and i recall the tv ad with him in front of this wall, with a flock of birds rising from the ground, as he had freed them for good luck. i later recall seeing a photo of him in a little cafe pinboard when we were staying in dharamsala, the home of the dalai lama. it's funny what your memory recalls.
i didn't do any adho mukha svanasana or sit in sukhasana once during our travels across yogas homeland...what a travesty.
