Mysore doesn't really strike me as a huge druggie town.

However, I've been offered drugs here more here in the last two days, than in the entire total of the last two months.

I get offered various drugs at least 4-5 times per day here.

It's quite strange... Even on the beaches of Varkala where people were smoking joints
left right and center, no one offered me drugs. I assume they figured if someone wanted some, they would seek it out.

However, there are touts here hanging out outside the major backpacker hotels, and at a few of the tourist sites who seek out foreigners, start talking to you about something relatively innocent, and then suddenly ask you if you'd like a bhang lassi (marijuana milkshake).

Silly men - can't they see I'm just here to eat the food?
