Looking for Jodhpurs

After nine days in Pushkar I was looking for some adventure so I decided to head off to Jodhpur. Last time I was there was 8 years previously on my birthday. Jodhpur is a lovely busy town with plenty to do and see.

Watch the video of my trip to Jodhpur

The first day in Jodhpur looking around

Found this Locksmith who has one of the tiniest shops ever

If you eat meat you should be prepared to kill it, or at least see how it is killed, not nice but real

Last day in Jodhpur before heading off to Bikaner

I also managed to do another 29 year photo gap….

Shanti in Pushkar

March the first came along and Nadette flew into India, So train from Udaipur to Ajmer and then a quick taxi to Pushkar for nine days of pure relaxation. Well I did a lot of walking and went for a cycle too.

Pushkar is a holy place where the atmosphere by Indian standards is very relaxed “Shanti Shanti”

Trains Travel Chittagorh to Udaipur

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…
