Shimoga – Madikeri – Kannur

Catching the bus from Shimoga early in the morning to Madikeri up in the hills. Passing lots of fields of corn.


Coming into Madikeri. Pictures of passers-by. Stop.

Climbing a hill above my hotel. Taking someone’s dogs for a walk. The dump is on top of the hill, garbage goes over the cliff.

Catching another early bus to Virajpet from Madikeri. I had to change buses at Virajpet. This is the interstate special speed bus that I caught.

Interstate bus – Karnataka to Kerala

Passing through Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary. It is full-on rainforest jungle that stretches for miles and miles. Very wild country.

So many tuk-tuks lined up in this town. I have never seen so many tuk-tuks.

And a lineup of gawdy buses. All dolled up like pox-doctor’s clerks.

Finally arriving in Kannur, having lunch at the bus stand. Searching for my hotel with the tuktuk driver. Totally in the wrong place when it is all sorted eventually.
