Back in Bangalore, our bus leaves in 5 hours so I had a bit of time to kill. Gonna be a long one, but worth it no doubt. Train was interesting today, I spent most of the time talking to 2 professionals from Bangalore. They told me many things about the Indian scoiety, shedding a bit of light on the caste system amongst other things. Really quite interesting, but I don't want to post about it at this time. Thunderstorm in Mysore was, in a word, awesome. Big forks split the sky. Lately I've been asking for spicy dishes, its such a treat to have such flavourful food. Lots of beggars but I've found that the best way to deal with them or anyone else trying to get your money is to ignore them. Maybe I wrote that alrady, I can't remember. We've found that the best rates on rickshaws is to use the meter- what one guy told us would cost 150 RS cost 65R. Lets see...Hampi tomorrow! So excied to be getting out of the congested cities.
