As we ate breakfast our entertainment wasn’t on TV. Instead we watched the local women washing clothes in the lake on the ghats across the lake.
We headed across the lake to the palace. Unfortunately we decided to go the same day as 12,000 Indian tourists. The palace was beautiful but it took the shine off it having to queue and move at three shuffles a minute round the whole labyrinth of the place. Despite travelling to Udaipur to see the regal building, it was actually nice to get out of there.
We went shopping, a shop owner asked us, “Do you know these ladies?” and showed us pictures taken in his shop.
“Yeh! That’s Judy Dench and Maggy Smith!” Said Nat.
“This was taken yesterday, they said they were famous but I wasn’t sure!” said the shopkeeper.
“This town is famous for James Bond, this lady is ‘M’ in the new films!” I said excited for him.
“Oh!.. Please look at my paintings. I give very good price!” he said losing interest.
We know the celebrities were in town so we made it our goal to find them. After about twenty minutes hunger took over from our need to meet film stars so we headed to a riverside restaurant for a great veggie currie.
