We were booked into a hotel in Delhi by the Tourism Department. We had decided we didnt want to go back to the rat trap we had stayed in before we left for Nepal. No way were we going back there. Nothing to do around there!
Everything was going smoothly when all of a sudden we saw the rat trap hotel approach, we looked at it and thought thank god we arent staying there...then the taxi driver stopped RIGHT outside the place. We just looked at each other and turned to the taxi driver and said NO, that aint right - this isnt our hotel! Funny thing was, we didnt actually check which hotel we were booked into lol. Nisha took out the reciept and it thankfully wasnt the same joint, but one of its sister hotels - a little more up market...PHEW! wed paid more money this time as well lol. It could only happen to us...lucky escape.
We left for Bangalore early the next day., relieved to get out od Delhi.
Bangalore weather seemed quite nice , not too hot at all. It started to rain in INdia now - we think it followed us back from Nepal. Its not even monsoon season! Why? Its good in that it only rains late into the night and the days are extremely dry so I guess its not all bad.
All weve been doing in Bangalore is hitting Pizza huts, and shopping malls and weve watched 2 movies in the space of 3 days lol. Tomorrow we're doing some touristy stuff, vi siting Lalbagh, the JN planetarim, temples and Tipu's Palace before we head off to Kerala.
Oh, we bought permanent contact lens for 20 quid. BARGAIN...
We cant wait to get to Kerala in a few days - at least well be back to doing cool stuff there.
There, weve updated u on the last 3 weeks.
