Mysore may have been a lovely place but we'll never know as we didn't see much of it. Visited the palace and the colourful market but then got the news from my dad that our lovely cat Bruno had been run over outside his house. We were absolutely gutted as we'd grown really fond of the him over the past year, as had my dad in the month that Bruno had been staying with him. It sounds as though he had been having a great time exploring the countryside around dad's house and annoying him while he sat at his computer, which made us feel happy. We'll miss you Bruno.
We didn't really feel like sight seeing after that so we moped around our hotel for a day or two and then took a bus down to Kerala via Bangalore.
