Bollywood calls

but we're asleep

On the way back from the internet cafe yesterday, we were approached by a scout from one of the Mumbai film studios asking if we'd like to appear as an extra in a Bollywood film - apparently they're always on the lookout for people from the west. Of course we both said yes - and arranged to meet the scout at 8am the following morning.

As I mentioned earlier, the new hotel we're in is pretty crappy; and neither Tab or I fell asleep until about 6:30am, meaning we slept through the alarm and missed our big chance. I guess the pivotal role of 'man in swimming pool' is being played by someone else.

We think we've worked out a route - we're leaving here tomorrow night for Ahmedabad. It's an 8 hour overnight train journey, leaving from Mumbai central at about 10pm. From here, we're going onto Udaipur, a nice town of about 300,000 people before heading up to Jaipur, Agra and then Delhi where we fly on to Bangkok.

Tabi's set up her blog here http://tabi.travellerspoint.com

Hi Rob,
They probebly wouldn't have given you the privilede part of 'man in the swimming pool' anyway! So you don't need to worry!!! But I'd be sooo disapointed if I were Tabbi-she'd have got it !!!

It would have shown a remarkable lack of observatory powers if they gave the part of 'man in swimming pool' to Tabi ;-)
Nice to hear from you.
