Hampi isn't Raining!


Fugitives from the west coast monsoon: Masha has gone to Mumbai to party and I'm in Hampi, which seems like the tourist central of South India as there are more tourists here than locals! There is no rain here but the river is swollen with floodwater and some of the roads to key attractions are closed.. sigh.


Internet is 50 rupees an hour in this tourist trap town so I'll be uploading photos in my next destination, perhaps Badami.

That;s too bad. Hampi is one of the most beautiful places in India. Apparently, with the most temples per square foot. Definitely the highlight of my month long trip to India - even more so than Agra and Taj Mahal. It takes a good 3 or 4 days to see Hampi properly. If you ever go back, I suggest passing by there, and don't forget to visit the Mango Tree Restaurant, visit the historic Vedic lake where Krishna & Radha supposedly were once and also climb the 650+ steps of the monkey temple on the other side of the river, where you get 360 panoramic views. I must have taken some 300 pictures in Hampi alone. Sad you didn't get to see it more.
