This is not a full-fledged travelogue, but a small collection of photos from a weekend trip. Put up to capture some memories from a recent village visit.

Last Sunday (24th Jan 2010) we visited a farm-house owned by a relative of one of Sangeetha’s colleagues. We were accompanied by another colleague of her’s from the UK who was visiting Bangalore. The farm-house is located in a 30 acre property, near a small village adjacent to a forest corridor.

We had to drive through Mysore, take the road to Nanjangud and drive into the interiors to reach the farm.

Total distance covered that day, to and from Old-Airport road, was 374kms.

Route…

Started from Bangalore at around 6.30am and reached Kamat Lokaruchi for breakfast.

Tiger!

Shopping for sweets…

I had to stop for a few minutes at around 10am to make a few phone calls. Stopped at the Darya-daulat bagh palace in Srirangapatna and while I was on the phone, the ladies went ahead to check out the palace…

Some flower pics from the Darya-daulat bagh gardens…

Drove through Mysore and took the deviation from Nanjangud road…
