A brief walk in Udaipur

Since we arrived in Udaipur about noon, I went for a walk after I had finished having a shower and a nap.


Outside the hotel. There is a reasonable amount of traffic but it is relatively easy to cross the road.


Chemist just around the corner. The hotel has a great location and there is even an ATM nearby.


Steps to a Hindu temple. I did not go up there.




Now those are woks.


The Lake Palace which was used as a location in the James Bond film, Octopussy. Apparently the film is shown constantly in Udaipur since some of the movie was filmed here.



I continued on beside the water. The boat ride left from here later in the day.




A monkey who is visible in the prior photo towards the top.


Tourist boat.




Notice how few people there are. This is a fair sized city but this tourist area is not crowded.


Children playing beside the water. It was not a weekend so presumably they should have been in school.



Passageway. It all feels quite safe in a tourist area like this.



A group of women were washing their saris in the water and some had removed their tops so I refrained from getting closer.





There are still tigers in the nearby nature reserves. I returned to the hotel for another nap before the sunset boat-ride.
