Maharaja's Palace
I guess now is officially the start of my travels alone as I decided to travel to the destinations sooner than the Australian couple I had been with. My stop at the moment is a place called Mysore in the Karnataka. There are tourists here but not by the hoardes. The main draw here is the beautiful royal Majaraja's Palace. The royal family was in power from about the 1500s to the early 1900s. This area is known for its silk and incense industry so I had fun shopping.
I remember that when I wrote about Peru (ages ago), I said that the world was your toilet. This seems to be true here as any wall seems to be fair game for urination(maybe thats why I always seem to smell pee wherever I go).
On that note, I will write again from my next stop Ooty - a place I've heard is beautiful for its hills and nature.

The Next Stop
Laura, It's fantastic that you're having the esxperience of your life traveling in exotic corners of the world. I'm jealous to be reading about it while I'm sitting here with -17 degree weather outside. You logs have been really interesting. At the same time though, I'd really like to know more about which part of India you're in now, if you have a chance, could you give us a bit more detail on which part of India the Karnataka is?
