Day 209: Elephant parade

Today I went to Paripally, a nearby town to see the temple celebrations and elephant parade. There must have been about 50 elephants covered in ceremonial dress, first on show in the temple grounds and then paraded through the busy streets (amongst the chaotic traffic!).


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.
