On the Road in South India

From BANGLAORE to MYSORE to HASSAN to CHIKMAGLUR and back.

Some may point to the food or the clothing as the most obvious signs of difference between the North and the South, but for me it was encapsulated in the sights along our drives from destination to destination. While the north can be brown and dry, the south is green and lush.  While the north lets color pop in their saris, turbans and trucks, the south lets the color spill onto their homes and businesses. From the road you can see the region’s lifeline – its agriculture – paddies of rice, feilds of sugarcane, and forests of coffee and tea. Here’s just a glimpse at the sight from our short trip in the south. As you can see, there’s one thing that does stay consistent between north and south… Indians try to fit ALOT on their bikes.

  1. Love it! I hadn’t really thought about the color concept but you’re right. It’s right there on the temples, the houses, even the ox carts. Thanks for the memories.
