Mysore, India

Well after nearly 2 months lazing around in goa, i finally started to get moving again on monday
And it was a decision i was glad off, decent nights sleep on the train down south, then get the local bus from bangalore to mysore.  Staying a little bit out of town at a cheap international hostel, but seen as i have all day i just wandered into town, and took in the sight of Mysore palace, completed in 1912 it totally immaculate and exquistely decorated with lots of gold leaf and paintings on the ceilings. It gets illuminated by some 90000 bulbs at the weekend, but il miss that as would have moved on to the hill station of ooty then, in tamil nadu.
Took in more of the town including the staple south indian diet of masala dosas (like pancakes bit bit crispy with potato curry in) and veg thalis (as much rice as you can eat n diff veg curries ontop).  Going to Charamundi hill tomorrow, several kms outside of mysore with a hindu temple on the top.
Pictures to follow soon

Oh well I am looking forward to the photos that will follow!
I would have liked to have seen all those bulbs lighting up the palace.also the paintings and gold leaf.

You certainly won't be used to the bland food here when you get home, although saying that your dad did a mean spicy chilli sausage casserole for tea. I couldn't make tea tonight as I was busy having a bath! ha ha
Take care Tomxxxxx
