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.
The ashtangis hit the dance floor at the Saturday night bazaar.
The Saturday Night Bazaar in Arpora is full of shops selling things you want, but don’t need. And quite a lot of things you don’t want either.
Today I went to Anjuna flea market which takes place every Wednesday. It’s a test of will-control not to but clothes / bags / jewelry / etc etc.
This evening I came across this vibrant spice stall at the local night market.
Today I went to cooking school which was AMAZING. We started out by visiting a local market with our small wicker baskets.
We got to choose from a range of different dishes and then cooked them in small groups and eating each dish after we made it. I cooked papaya salad, tom yum soup, pad thai, green curry with chicken and coconut sticky rice with mango.
Psar Chaa literally means “old market”. The chickens here are sold a little differently to Tescos.
