... We saw the tomb of Tippu Sultan, the Srirangapatna Museum, then we went and had lunch at a nearby hotel. At this restaurant there was an Indian wedding taking place. It was great to experience how celebrations such as these are celebrated here. I learned that weddings in India are a huge deal and range from 200-1000s of guests. It was also interesting to learn that weddings are ...

The Lonely Planet says 'if you haven't been to Mysore you just haven't seen South India', we wouldn't take it that far but we did really enjoy Mysore. The only down side was that we spent the majority of time on our **** - literally. We got the local bus from Hampi where we had to sit on wooden chairs for a grueling 10 hours (sore **** no.1).
