We said goodbye to Bangalore after a week full of adventures, delicious “Veg and Non-veg food”, and after seeing our anatomy textbooks come alive in the operating room.
On our way to Gudalur, which is located in the Nilgiris hills of Tamil Nadu, we stopped for a short visit in Mysore a city of palaces at the border of state Karnataka. This was our place to unwind and walk around palaces full of history and Hindu mythology, spice and fruit markets and far away gardens. It was here where we also met Lisa, the last member of our team and where we welcomed the holy month of Ramazan. Once our bags were packed and ready to go, we took a jeep to go across the border of the state of Karnataka into Tamil Nadu by wondering through their magical wildlife sanctuaries. We finally arrived in Gudalur where a homecooked south India dinner and the friendly staff from the Adivasi Hospital welcomed us.
