We have said goodbye to our sixth set of hosts today. Jangannadh and Vidya have looked after me very well in Shimoga and Yashas sends us off with a high five. We have a five hour bus journey to Mangalore, along some of the best (or worst?!) roads we have seen. I still can’t believe that people drive on roads like this. There are craters, not potholes, and drivers overtaking on corners. This road has hairpin bends as we go down the side of a huge mountain. It’s all worth it for the views though! We are back in Mangalore for the district conference where we will be presenting to over 3000 people. Good job we have had lots of practice on this trip. And we don’t want to rub it in, but it is 35 degrees here in Mangalore. Enjoy the snow!
We are taking part in the Rotary D.1190 (Cumbria and Lancashire) Group Study Exchange to India Rotary D.3180 (Karnataka). Although mainly based in Mangalore, we will be travelling throughout Karnataka in South West India. The trip takes place from 2 January 2013 until 2 February 2013. As well as visiting many historical and religious places, we will each spend five days learning about our individual sectors and how they function in India. Throughout the trip we will live with Rotarians and their families, experiencing and enjoying their culture and hospitality.
