Hi all! As mentioned in our earlier post, the three of us were busy travelling to different places either with our family or to visit them. Since it was the holiday season, how could *~The Canvirries~* miss out on all the fun? We gave you a sneak peek of our vacation in our previous post, and now we are taking you through a kaleidoscope of pictures that each of us have taken through our journey.
This post is based on my (the purple patissier's ) family trip to South India.
Me, my mother,sister and niece at the start of our journey.
Being Buddhists, our trip included visiting massive Tibetan monasteries all around a place called Koppa ( 2 hrs drive from Mysore). There are so many monasteries in Koppa. Of which, The Golden Temple is the most famous.
Above is a picture of the entrance to the Golden Temple, and once inside, you'll see this :
Here are some more pictures of the other monasteries we visited. The one below was taken on our way inside:
Whenever one visits a monastery, they see this:
The picture below was outside the prayer room. I love this traditional tibetan curtain. Its so cute and looks very antique! Sadly, it wasnt big enough to cover the huge door.
I got these sandals at a store in the village. They're so cute and so comfortable. My companion through the whole trip ^_^
You haven't had the true Indian experience without having a traditional Indian meal and there's a big difference between a North Indian and a South One. Here's a snap of the South Indial meal I enjoyed:
This includes rice, roti (indian flat bread), dal (lentil soup), papaddam ( deep fried lentil based wafers), a spicy vegetable curry( sambhar), 2 sides of stir fried vegetables, some pickle, yoghurt and a sweet dish ( rice pudding or milk pudding with vermicelli). Its usually served in a metal platter or as I like it, on a banana leaf. You really have to use your hands to enjoy this.
And to gulp all of this down, a tall glass of ice cold Coke.........burrrppp!!!!
I hope you liked the pictures, next time you're in India and around the South, dont miss out on visiting these places or at least tasting a South Indian meal.
Loads of love,
