So leaving Bundi behind me I did a hard days travel to Udaipur via Chittagorh. Chittagorh has the biggest fort in Rajasthan, at least by surface area. So I had to take a quick look at it as the last time I was there was 29 years ago on my first trip to India with Nadette. Not much has changed except that now there is a whole industry of Indian travellers where as before no body was here.
Watch the day I had in the video below
After Chittagorh on to another train and Udaipur, also 29 years since I was last here and the town where a lot of the film Octopussy was shot.
Watch a 60 second film of Udaipur here
In Udaipur I became friendly with Raju, he runs a chai stall and food stand, really nice guy so I put together a small film for him. He was so happy he invited me back in the evening to drink some whisky with him. I had a train the next day at 6AM so up at 5 was a bit of a shock to the head….
Watch Raju make an omelette here
Lastly I started remembering old shots that had been taken before and redoing them so here is the first…
