We just got back from a 10 day community stay in Auroville (more on that later) where I didn’t have internet, but I’m finally writing more about our travels.

This was the only place we stayed in a normal hotel! We spent two nights here, and mostly had free time and explored on our own. We did go to a temple on top of a hill that is famous somehow, but it was quick and we didn’t really know anything about it. We also saw a large stone bull that belongs to the god Shiva, and went into the Mysore palace. Mysore is known for its silk and sandalwood, so we did some shopping. An auto-rickshaw driver also convinced us to let him take us to a spice market and essential oils and incense shop. It was fun, but I think we were all ready to be out of the city again by the time we left. Not to mention, most of the group got food poisoning. Not fun.
