My husband and I are currently in Bhuj. We booked a room for seven nights (just waking up from our first night). We depart on the 21st (today is the 15th).

We'd love some suggestions to make the most of our time here. Normally we stay a month in each place, exploring and meeting the locals. This is more like a tourist visit, though, and we'd like to do as many things as possible while here. :-)

Our interests are mainly about the art/craft of the tribal people (observing the way they create their art and possibly participating to learn a bit more, witnessing their way of life), seeing the local sites of interest, doing some day trips to explore more areas of interest (Rann of Kutch, important temples/sites, etc.).

We've called around for guides, but so far everyone is busy because of the wedding season. So, any assistance is greatly appreciated! :-)

You may contact Krutarthsinh Jadeja at Devpur homestay (40 kms off Bhuj) for some suggestions on a local guide. Other options are to look at NGOs such as Shrujan or Khamir. Both are established. There's also a local ''craft park'' - please google the link.

It is already 10 years ago that we visited this area.
Maybe that the details of this visit of the March part of the Mumbai - Delhi journal in my signature give you some hints.
