Saturday

Nice sunset last night.

Saturday lay in, no stupid o’clock alarm call, but sleep quality here is the problem, although I am getting used to the constant traffic horns and barking dogs sleep isn’t as deep as I would like it to be. After breakfast it was time to say goodbye to Laura, her month gone in a flash, back to the US and her husband and Menagerie of dogs and birds.

So it was out to play on my own, I got the bus to the croissant shop, then came back via the Railway Museum, half a dozen steam trains you can climb over and take pictures of.

Life in this country is often lived on the street in plain view, no privacy, yesterday we saw a woman driving her cows down the street, oblivious of the traffic and the annoyed drivers of cars,Rickshaws , bikes and trucks swerving to avoid her.

We also saw a cow stealing Bananas!

I’m amazed the broadband wifi is usual good when you see this.

Further along we could hear drums and noise, when we got to the spot we realised it was some kind of funeral wake, the body laying on a board on the pavement covered in flowers, the mourners sitting on plastic chairs, life in Mysore going on as ever around it all.
