Just a quickie -
Internet is so slow here. It's a completely different Hampi across the river. The tourist area is just a dirt road, with a few guest-houses. No fruit-sellers, no beggars, no cows.
I have a view of rice paddies, baby goats, farmers, a river, and boulders in the distance - all from my room, and the hammock/bed thingie outside...
I've got 9 books unread, my birthday is tomorrow, and I'm at a very quiet, relaxing place... so why leave? I'll be here for at least a few days. I doubt i'll even start exploring the town for at least a few more.
