Back from Mysore

26 Jan

Spent the last 2 days in Mysore (a family function). Unfortunately could not visit all the places I wanted to. But I did some nice things.. walked around Karanji Lake, visited Chamundi Hills, walked on Sayaji Rao road just for old times sake. Caught up with a lot of childhood friends and their families. It was so cool.

In all the modern day madness, Mysore still retains its old world charm. Having said that, I think the roads are better than in Bangalore. Amazing thing is, you can still get from one end of town to the other in under 10 minutes.

Managed to sneak in a visit to Ramya for their set Dose.

The drive from Bangalore to Mysore was great as well. The road is wonderful and a pleasure to drive on.

    A trip down memory lane is always refreshing for the mind and body. Sounds like you had a fun time in Mysore. I will be coming to India during the summer. Hopefully, I can make one trip to Mysore. Though I did not spend too much time there, I have a lot of memories. My second son was born there.

    TP: I had a great time… nothing has changed there.. still the same old Mysore.. relaxed, unhurried… The only change from the old times you will see is the drive to Mysore which is now wonderful.. 2 hours and 15 minutes flat.

    a visit to a place where you have spent your childhood days are always refreshing and will take you back to memory and you will cherish these trips and if you happen to meet some old contacts after a very long time then the trip will be much more enjoyable.
