Mysore, India Photos Like You've Never Seen Her Before

Getting to Mysore, India (actually called Mysuru) from Bengaluru, involved sitting on a cramped bus with your luggage for 4 hours.

There was no air-conditioner on this bus, but that was fine, since it was cloudy enough to prevent intense heating.

Check out Bengaluru, India here.


Less Chaotic Than Bengaluru

Arriving in Mysore, you immediately feel that it is WAY less chaotic than Bengaluru.

Still just as dirty with garbage thrown around on every corner, street, green field, crevice and what not, but otherwise, less chaotic.

Riding Around Mysore

My friend and I rented a motorbike for 1 day, and rode around the entire city.

Mysore, India Just for a Day or 2
