Our rambles have taken us throughout the town so we have wandered down residential streets, through local food stalls, around markets and poked our noses in places that perhaps we shouldn't. We applied to help in an orphanage but were told they didnt need us. Sad because we found a little house that we could rent for £90 a month and even buy for £4,000. A charming little place that overlooked the river and was just 5 minutes walk from Disneyland.
We have today been to visit the Cham ruins at Mysore. Various piles of ancient bricks, some in the form of towers, some with the the vestiges of building sstill visible, all with creepers and moss adorning them.
A bit of a schlep on another hired motorbike but well worth it since we were amoungst the first to arrive therefore and had the place pretty much to ourselves for 30 minutes until suddenly the hoards arrived in their coaches. This curtailled our enjoyment of the quiet overcrown setting but allowed us the specatacle of watching a little free ethic dance show in the company of 500 japanese tourists who were Nikon'ed and Canon'ed to within an inch of their lives. The dancers must have felt as if the paparazzi were in town with the number of flashes that were so prolific it bleached the colour from the shiney set behind them. One woman beside me must have take 200 pictures in the 20 minute spectacle of strange movements and even stranger costumes.
Am now enjoying a rum and coke whilst the newly arrived rain washes the streets clean for tonights perfomance.
