Tilly is I'll, so I leave her at the 5 star hotel I book for her to recover and go off exploring.
I spend the day visiting the old temples at Belur and Halebid. They are apparently the best examples of detailed Muslim craftsmanship and don't disappoint.
I take local buses to get around and go to a local restaurant for a very good thali. All in I spend maybe £3 getting a whole day out with food and 40km of travel....only in India.
