Mysore is one of my favorite cities in India. The reasons for this are not that obvious. There are no important sights to visit, no mindboggling temples or forts. It's also not a particularly beautiful place. But there is something about the people that I really liked. They are open and friendly. When I was walking through the streets of Mysore I was very often waved at, to come over and sit down and have a short chat… so often, that I had to decline many times, as I wanted to cover some ground and get some photos in the limited time I had in this friendly city.
