... Last night the driver convinced us that he knew both places like the back of his hand but in actual fact it was evident that he had never been to either place, stopping to ask for directions every 5 minutes. Anyway, it was a 3 hour drive to Seringapatam where we stopped to check out the Tipu Sultan palace and fort walls which features in the Sharpe books Michael loves. From there we drove for another ...
