Octopussy Udaipur then Jaipur

Udaipur was once the setting for the James Bond film Octopussy, we arrived in the evening after our trip from Jodhpur and spent two days and nights there before heading off to Jaipur, the major city in Rajasthan.

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…
