Bangalore and Mysore, a muted memory

I like the sound of these names. Sadly, however, I remember little about these south Indian cities I visited. Perhaps it was the pace of my third visit to India.

When you travel with someone you adapt. I was a slow, stay in the one place and get to know the area kind of traveller with someone who wanted to see it all in three months. That’s why I carry every detail of Rameswaram’s sandy streets but only one memory of these cities.

We stopped a man in the street and inquired about a particular institution. What an odd memory to hold when I’m sure these cities had a lot to offer. By this time I must have been travel weary, especially with two small children, one still in nappies.
