Mysore Diaries: First Impressions

Three smooth plane rides and 34 hours later, we finally landed in Bangalore. Our taxi man pulled the car up and helped us load all our goods in the trunk. He had a red bindi on his forehead and a missing tooth, and was exceptionally tired, given that we landed at 3:20am. So tired, in fact, that he fell asleep while driving us to Mysore several times. Only for a few seconds at a time, but still. He stopped twice during the trip - once for coffee, and the other we're not so sure; he just parked and left us in the car without saying anything.

Self Worth & Living Your Best Life
