Adventure before dementia

Mysore & Bandipur

INDIA | Saturday, 23 March 2019 | Views [125] | Comments [1]

Great overnight train to Mysore and we both had a good sleep, must be getting used to sleeping on a train! Mysure was just a quick stopover really, although we did have a very nice hotel. Not that much to see in Mysore but it is an attractive city with wide avenues, grand roundabouts and large buildings. The reason most people come here is to visit the palace, which is all that we did. It was very opulent and gold. Next stop was Banipur National Park for more safaris. We are now in elephant country. Saw a small herd of elephants on all safaris. Got very close to a large tusked bull elephant who made his presence felt to the point the jeep driver pulled away! Lots of other birds and animals. Beautiful countryside, forests, lake and hills. Saw an amazing peacock display with his full tail feathers fanned out. Off to the Coorg region next which is a countryside area growing tea, coffee and spices. Weather still hot and sunny. Love Dawn & Mark xx



Hi Dad,I know you spend all day polishing the gold in your house! Very profound comments. We haven't seen much opulence, mostly everyday working people getting on with life. Nor have we seen any begging once you are away from the city. There is more begging in UK cities! In India there is a very high expectation that people work for a living. We are in our last week now. Hopefully the replacement flight will come off. Having an amazing time. Love Dawn xx
