Hampi was absolutely incredible, and well worth the 9 hour bus ride! I've never been to a place so rich with history. They are countless temples amidst the huge boulders and banana plantations. I'll post more later, but here is the main temple in Hampi, which was built in the 1500's, overlooks the entire city and is awe-inspiring.
Below is me being blessed by Lakshmi, the main temple's elephant. Close contact with elephants was not something I was expecting this trip, I feel so lucky to have had two such experiences!And below, one last sunset in Goa!
