On to Mysore and I have to admit I wasn't expecting the fabulous palace which is lit up every Sunday - between 65000 & 80000 light bulbs is the estimate - couldn't help thinking of the Harrods and Mr Bean episode though when it lit up. As it was rebuilt in 1912 it's also very interesting inside.
I also made the Railway Museum which is rather twee (it costs 6p) and has the former Maharaja's train carriages in it.
No mishaps in what is a more typical Indian town - we're crossing the road like veterans now.
The roads are spectacularly bad - there is no God of road building - and we saw 2 little accidents in 5 minutes - however most traffic goes so slowly it's usually appears minor.
We are at the local tour managers house and then headed of for the night train to Chennai (Madras) - Liz managed a beer and nibbles shop just before we left...
