Diary of an Indian holiday: Mangaloo-ru beckons

It’s a month since we set out on our 3 week Christmas/NY break to India. No point in saying ‘How time flies!’….

Week 1 – London-Mumbai-Mangalore-Mumbai
Twenty four hours after landing in Mumbai we set out once again for the airport, this time on our way to Mangalore to visit my grandmother and aunts. Our three day trip was a real break from the hustle of everyday life. In our bit of Mangalore, you can lose yourself in a wilderness that is hard to come by these days.

We spent our three days feasting on coconuts and yummy home-cooked food. Mr R treated his camera to birds, trees, butterflies and nature in one her finest, quietest avatars. It was a feast for all senses.

A quick day trip to Karkal – to see St Lawrence’s Church and then to Gomateshwara – the 42′ high monolith of Bahubali, temples at Kateel and Udipi and our trip was at an end.
