Jagwindas Island, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India by 


When in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, in 2009, I took advantage of a boat trip on the lake to see Jagwindas Island, where Roger Moore (as James Bond) stayed in Octopussy. When I was there in 2004, the monsoon had not been good for sometime, and you could walk to the Island. The opulence on the Palace Island/Hotel is quite astounding, but the people who stay in this kind of luxury when in India, don’t really want to know India, just want to buy it.
