Well, we finally exited our gated compound and entered “the real world” today. Infosys set up a tour of the major sights of Mysore – including Chamundi Hill and Mysore Palace. Both were pretty awesome places, with a lot of beautiful things to see – including the second largest bull statue in India. There were plenty of street vendors and people trying to sell you overpriced trinkets. We were quite a spectacle to see apparently – the sight of a bunch of Americans walking around in Mysore led to people staring at us, taking photos of us and with us, etc.
I finally have my Indian cell-phone number – contact me if you want it. I was amazed at how cheap it was – I was able to get a SIM card and 445 minutes for 500 rupees ($25) out the door from Hutch. Gotta love it.
I put some new photos up today, so check them out.
