Landed in Bangalore very early morning, moved through customs and found our driver all with surprising ease. It was the drive from Bangalore to Mysore that had us completely dumbstruck. India is an all out assault on the senses. The air has so many different smells, so more pleasant than others. The honking of car horns is constant, but it is what you see that is unbelievable…”what that like 5 cows just hanging out on the side of the road?” Pulling any awareness in at this point seems impossible. We have arrived safely at our room at the warm and welcoming Shakti Guesthouse. I hope to register at the shala this afternoon and get to practice tomorrow morning, I desperately need something familiar. Pictures coming soon! Peace, Peace, Peace.
