My name is Hemant, and together with my four uncles I run a hotel in beautiful Jaisalmer, in the desert of Rajasthan. The hotel is located near the historical fort on a quiet street in the neighborhood
We are looking for people who want to help us all year round.
We would like your help for 1 to 5 hours per day, for a minimum of 2 weeks, and a maximum of 6 months if you really enjoy being here. You will join our local workers and be part of our family for a while :-)
In return, we would provide you with a hotel room, food and free WIFI. You will also be offered the possibility of coming with us to a camel safari in the desert if you want to.
But most importantly, you will get a glimpse of Jaisalmer life and you will interact not only with our international guests, but also with the relaxed members of a family-business. In the process you might make friends for life and learn a little Hindi and some Rajasthani cuisine here and there :-)

We are eager to learn about other cultures, foreign habits, different sensibilities, as we do not have the chance to be exposed to other cultures much, besides of our daily tourist activity, which doesn't get any further than practical information exchange. So for us, your presence only means a lot, and you will in return learn how we people live, within our very specific Rajasthani, Jaisalmeri culture.
