Day 6: The happiest place on earth

 

Today was all about Bollywood. We visited the RAMOJI Film City – allegedly the worlds largest film studios. After a relatively short bus ride we arrived in the midst of what looked and later felt like a million Indian school kids, their teachers and a lot (!) of other locals. As the temperature climbed so did our enjoyment. The countless attractions and shows were …. very Indian. The parks biggest attraction seemed to be a group of Swiss students (us), who stayed available for photos with the other visitors.

After strolling around the theme park and a delicious lunch break we couldn’t hide our amazement during the bus tour around the different film sets ofall our favourite Indian movies. But the highlight was still to come. When back from the bus tour – during which we also could walk around some of the most atmospheric gardens – we attended the world famous RAMOJI Film City Stunt Show. The breathtaking stunts and pure action, combined with a heart warming story, made our hearts pump pure curry flavoured adrenaline through our veins.

The day ended up with a way too short trip on the famous Hyderabad party boat on lake Hussain Sagar, around the Buddha statue which stands majestically in the lake. During the tremendous drive we were entertained by a magnificent dance show. To the tunes of both, Indian and western music, the volume just slightly above the maximum allowed limit of most other countries. A part of Gesche died today.
