Wrapping Up Hampi

Well I'm finally leaving Hampi tomorrow night. It's been an amazing time, relaxing, climbing, playing chess, cards, or any other game, visiting temples, jumping into the lake, riding motorbikes and overcrowded rickshaws. I made some good friends here from all over the world. Tomorrow I head to Mumbai for the Holi Festival. Julia from Germany is also heading to Mumbai, so we're going to find a room to share there.

Oh and there's the cake man, who wanders through the rocks hawking "Cakes, cakes, coconut, chocolate, pineapple, banana, everything is mixing cake." I'll miss this place.

Sounds like a perfect wrap to your first month there...how time seems to fly. Can't wait to see what comes next-did you ever get a hold of Shantaram?

The top photo reminds me of T-Rex. I would love to see these formations in person. Is the last photo the girl you're going to travel with? If the Holi Festival is the one where they throw all the colored powder, I want to see a picture of you with the colors all over you. Happy travels.

Here's some advice from a friend who lived in Mumbai for a year or so:
" not to be missed is a tour of the Dharevi Slum. It's fascinating and in many ways inspiring to see how much industry is happening there."

Love, Ma
