We treated ourselves to a chill out morning after yesterdays marathon bus ride. The lakeside patio was a great place to eat and drink whist trying to avoid everything else.
By lunchtime a guy who’d spent the whole day sitting in the corning playing a board game lifted his head and said, “Do you want a rickshaw tour of the city?”
I thought to myself, this must be a chilled out town if even the tuk-tuk drivers wait 3 hours before hassling you. We took him up on his offer.
Our first stop was Sunset Point, an amazing park over looking the city, the lake and James Bond Island where Octopussy was filmed.
Then it was round the locals markets and onto the Maharaja’s graveyard. Sarah honoured their memories by peeing up the back of one guy’s grave. For the record he ruled until 1620 something.
Hunger caught up on us so we grabbed some food from a street side stall and headed to the towns gardens for a little relaxing amongst the fountains and trees.
In the evening we treated ourselves to another lakeside curry and watched Octopussy to do some Udaipur spotting on the silver screen.
