Day (And Night) 94: Bangalore To Mumbai

Good things have this strange habit. They come to an end. Every time. I guess that what makes them special. That, however, was the last thought on my mind when I left Bangalore today for Mangalore.

The plan was simple. Since I had spent 9 days in Bangalore, I needed to reach Mumbai quicker than earlier. So I would head to Mangalore, then to Karwar, spend a day in Goa and reach Mumbai the next day. Pretty simple, huh? I woke up at 11.30 after a rather extended night watching random films. However, half a day is more than enough to get to Mangalore and visit Kasaragod. It was a good plan.

Day 89 & 90: (Still At) Bangalore

Ok, let me say this first. The ride ain’t over yet. The ride started in Mumbai and it will end in Mumbai. I am as close to the 90 day estimate I had with me when I started off. Going broke was an event I had already foreseen. I am just thankful it happened here and not in some place I don’t know anyone. But then, that would have been fun.

Going Broke

There are some things which no one can describe to you for. Like how Alice felt when she was going down the rabbit hole. Like what were Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo were thinking when they were drinking in the hotel in Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas. Like why the dog sticks its head out of the car. Like what it feels like being broke.

Day 84: Gudalur To Bangalore

Now here is the problem. I have friends in Bangalore but all of them are working tomorrow. Its a Friday tomorrow so it’s normal. But having been away from it all for this long, it doesn’t exactly come naturally to me. So, yeah, the problem. Since they will all be working till 7 in the evening, getting there any time early means sitting outside their office waiting for it to be over. So I had to leave Gudalur late.
