Day of rest

Hassan, India

Plan was to go on to Mysore for some temple viewing today but apparently there's a 10-day festival on there and as we all remember from our nativity plays, if you don't book in advance, you don't get accommodation. And Mysore has no mangers. So we've driven to Hassan, about 40km from Mysore and the eager templephiles among us can do a day trip there. I'm not one of them. I'm templed out. So it's a day of rest for me and about half of the party. Hassan is a thoroughly unremarkable town of 120,000. I can't think of a single thing to say about it so I won't. All I will say is that 250km in a day is too much on Indian roads. Left at 10am and arrived at 8pm. Driver Dan is doing a top job - seems to have boundless energy for a man who exists on Sprite and Marlboro Lights.

Onwards towards Kerala tomorrow.

CORRECTION - there is something (vaguely) interesting about Hassan. The name of this hotel.
