Last full day in Mysore
It is Sunday, December 11th, my last full day in Mysore. Yesterday, I printed off the final report and picked up the bus/train tickets to Gokarna.
These last few weeks have been intensive writing, though we did have some time for a little funny. To the left is a picture of me with Yetti (teacher for the Japanese students) prior to clocking the second fastest time in Mysore for a female at the go-cart race. If no one beats me by today, it goes into the record books!
Last night, we went out for a final bash with the whole student group. They took us to a local movie - three hours of melodrama, with a side of singing and dancing. It was in the local language (Kanada) but really there was no need to understand what was being said - the huge changes in music (dum dum dum!) and uber-expressive faces was enough to convey the feelings and basic storyline. Final scene - the girl (who found out she had a brain tumor) slowing dies in the arms of her lover, on a bench in front of the Taj Mahal. Oh yeah.
Tomorrow we make our final presentation, have a quick lunch with faculty, finish up packing and saying goodbyes - then off to the bus station. Next stop the beach!
Getting a little sad to leave this contained mini-universe behind. Good times, great friends.
