It was a jam-packed trip, and I managed to visit three temples and a hitherto unvisited cave temple, too….I’m off to Sirsi/Banavasi again later today and have just not had any time (a quick trip to the Bannerghatta-Kaggalipura Forest area with Rosita and her son Mark took away whatever little free time I had yesterday!)..so let me just post a few videos…I hope you don’t find them TOO boring…I love the train,which looks like a toy from the hill where I was standing, and driving through the gOpurams of the ancient temples!
Yesterday, near the downtown area (very close to the Gateway Arch) where A works, someone spotted a small strolley, and it was treated as a bomb threat. (A took the two photographs from her office window.)
Since I realized that the chosen destination for Rathika Ramaswamy’s workshop field trip (Jaipurdoddi) was unsafe, as a tusker had been sighted there, I suggested that they join us at one of my favourite places…Ragihalli, both the sheet rock area, and the koLA (pond)…the second being a destination that not many people seem to know about.
When two legs are not enough to take one everywhere, one resorts to four wheels….
