Location: Mysore/ open road, India

MapHaving resolved to leave Mysore I made rapid plans to get to Kerela. I found a travel agent who sold me a ticket for a night bus to Kochin the main entry point to Kerela. I specified that it shouldn't be at the back. After a day in a wildlife park with a guy called Lars I met at the bus station [random], including an excellent trip on some peddlows, I ended up back at the travel agents at nine. He gave me a ticket and got someone to walk me to the state bus stand. I'd paid for someone to take a five minute walk, great. No suprises I was at the back of the bus - this was to be my worst night-bus journey yet! Never before had I been so happy to see the light of day!
