we're leaving India tomorrow, i cant believe it! just as we were settling in and things were getting easier we have to say goodbye.
arrived in bangalore yesterday, got a sleeper coach here overnight. it was surprisingly comfortable and we slept most of the 12 hours here. bangalore is pretty westernised, the pavements are a mess but they have kfc and lots of other big brand names. it took a few moments to get use to all the pollution and cars after hanging out on the beach for so long. feels a bit hectic here but better than delhi. just wondered around getting to know the area, its feels pretty safe here and we dont get bothered much. went to watch our third hindi movie yestday, also went twice in panjim, watched rang de basanti, hidden camera and taxi last night
also went to eat japanese last night! we've both got sore thoarts so was in desperate need of some soup noodles to soothe our thoarts! we were pleasantly surprised to find it on the menu, i had beef soba and helina has sashimi! very pricey for indian standards but we needed a treat. quite a surreal experience though, would never had thought i'd be eating japanese in india! everything we've eaten here has been pretty good, some places have been excellent, its been a gourment feast really, feel so spolit eating at a different restaurant each night! and the best thing is thats its such good value and always generous portions, couldnt ask for more!
went on a tour of the city today, was pretty uninspiring, nothing special compared to other places we have visited already. and tonight we have to pack our bags again, off to singope tomorrow night, where my aunt will be meeting us at the airport. will be nice seeing a familiar face and not having to search and haggle for a place to stay! chat to you all soon x
