Day 198: One day in Bangalore

This morning I arrived in Bangalore where I spent the day before continuing my journey onwards to Kerala. My day in the city happenedto coincide with a rickshaw strike, leaving me to tackle the Bangalore public bus system (never have I love London buses more).

Whilst exploring some of the local back streets and bazaars I came across this neat temple covered in Ganesh statues.

Day 196: Hampi

I arrived in the town of Hampi this morning after taking the (non-)sleeper bus from Goa. As the sun rose local men and women came to wash, themselves and their clothes, in the river.

Hampi is the former capital of the Vijayanangara Empire and is home to numerous hindu temples, mainly built in the 16th century.

Day 194: Rolf

Today was my last yoga practice here in Goa. This is my wonderful teacher Rolf Naujokat. Words can’t begin to describe how wonderful, strong, knowledgeable and gentle he is. I have learned so much here in Anjuna.

It’s with a heavy heart, but a light practice, that I leave.
