Slept till the alarm at 6.00. Result!
Today we were in Udaipur, the Venice of the East. It’s a city of palaces; Winter Palace, Summer Palace, Monsoon Palace and Leisure Palace all for one Maharana. His family is the world’s longest lasting dynasty, 1400 years. The main palace is the biggest in Rajasthan and the second largest in India. They are built on the world’ s first man made lake and water management system.
It is the home town of our guide, Lokesh. We met his identical twin brother who does the same job!
For the third time we have seen major preparations for a wedding. It is very big and expensive and for the bride’s father to pay.
Now we are up for over 24 hours on the train – 1600 km south.
