The car was fueled, the Mint Lounge picked up. The music was loud, the day, cloudy. A lot of music. And so the traffic jam of Mysore Road was braved.
At the last point of civilization as we know it, a little ahead of Kengeri and a little before Raja Rajeshwari Dental College, we stopped for some piping hot idlis, vada, upma, and filter coffee.
There was a little bakery right next to the restaurant, they had just baked fruit cake and smelled heavenly. So we did their bohni and drove on.
One turn and many nurseries/ farms later..
We have an unhealthy obsession for roads.
One turn in the long and winding road and then this.
The place was unbelievably quiet. It was a beautiful sight.
It seemed like an endless moment of quiet camaraderie.
The backwater was endless. And beautiful.
We explored some country roads and drove through the very narrow roads of a village.
And a railway track completed the journey.
If you live in Bangalore, really want to hit the road, but can’t go out of town, drive to Machibele on a weekend morning. It’s worth the trouble of an early Saturday.
