Saturday rest day. Ahhhhhh... So many plans! But I achieved not much. As it should be. (But dammit, I haven't done my Sanskrit homework yet and it's almost bedtime...)
Had a lovely breakfast with (0v0) or is that (OvO) (skinny eyes or fat eyes for the Owl?), LIAsh and Tova. Oops, no group shot. Give the new arrivals some time to settle in first before sticking a camera in their faces! ;p
Today's breakfast was the first non-Indian meal I've had since arriving. Banana & Cinnamon Vegan Pancakes and a fruit salad. I didn't think to take a picture. I seem to gravitate towards pancakes all the time. From rotis to dosas to actual pancakes.
3 hours after breakfast, I met another friend for lunch (I promise you I'm eating my way through Mysore and gonna be a lard-ass after this month). She's a good friend of Maney, my rickshaw driver, too and invited me over to her flat for a lunch home-cooked by Maney himself!! (all permissions granted to post these faces here!) :p
On my way to lunch, I hopped into a rickshaw that had 3 students in the back. The driver stopped and said "Where you going?", named a price and so away we went. What beautiful kids! (and they didn't ask me for my country coin either, which made me love them more!!)
One more food porn shot for today: Dinner was a Ragi Roti. Only coz Nalpak doesn't have Akki Rotis on Saturdays. This is pretty much the same thing as an Akki Roti, just with a black-coloured flour which looks more appetizing. :)
Funny shots from around Mysore today. I've been meaning to take photos of this coconut poster, and since this dude was shut this morning, I took my chance. I'm not sure I understand how you'll save the farmer?
It's really juvenile, but I get a giggle every time I walk past phone shops with "STD and Local Calls" emblazoned on them.
And finally, even if I had these problems, I'm not sure I'd wanna be caught dead entering or leaving this hospital! BAHAHAHAHA! "Prakash! Take me to the PILES & PROCTOLOGY HOSPITAL. PRONTO!! My Mula Bandha seems to have grown a life of its own!!" BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! (Sorry, juvenile humour, see what I mean?)
My first week in Mysore is officially... OVER?!? Dammit, that sure passed quickly! I'm beginning to understand why people can stay here for 2 or 3 months at a time. I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms already and I'm not even halfway done. (!!!)
