Our first morning in Udaipur we decided to have some ‘plain’ food so headed to a more western restaurant (called The Little Prince) and ordered pasta for breakfast (more of a brunch as it was about 1100). Neither of us managed to finish our meal, partly because we hadn’t eaten much over the past couple of days and partly because our stomachs still weren’t feeling 100%. We left feeling slightly unwell but persevered and walked 10 minutes to the main tourist attraction in Udaipur, City Palace.
City Palace is the largest palace in Rajasthan and featured in the James Bond film Octopussy (there are some restaurants that show the film every night). We spent a good deal of time wandering around the massive complex but both of us agreed it wasn’t our favourite palace, not due to feeling unwell but due to the fact that it was massively busy and there was no space to yourself. Because we were feeling so rough we went back to our hotel for a little nap. In the evening when we were feeling slightly better we made it out for dinner but only to share a cheese sandwich, not the most exotic culinary affair. Not wanting to be total recluses we played half a dozen hands of cards before once again returning to the hotel.
