Circumnavigating India by Motorbike, Sept-Nov 2005

Kundapur to Goa

Trimurti at Kanwar

Managed to get some sleep last night at Kundapur. The food so far has been really awesome even at the roadside cafes. Sure beats Taco Bell!
We set out today after a delicious breakfast of idli, vada and fantastic coffee. The south Indian coffee is supreme!
Before long we got to the sea. It was a gorgeous day and after the recent rains, the landscape was really lush right up to the road. The roads were very good. 2 lane highway with coconut trees all around and scattered lotus ponds. The landscape was absolutely breathtaking. Got a lot of video footage which I can’t wait to see myself.
Just before we got to Goa state line border, we stopped of at this bridge in Kanwar where the backwater river end up at the ocean. Here’s a pic. of the 3 astronauts.
The traffic was sparse in the countryside and horribly congested as we got close to the towns and all the way to Panjim.
We are about to get some dinner and sleep. Tomorrow, we continue up north. Cheers.

    Dude, love the blog, but as an editor, I have to tell you that you are most certainly NOT “circumventing” India, in which case, you would be doing some sort of bizarre avoidance of the country on your motorbike. Rather, you are circumnavigating India. ;-p

    Hope the bumps in the road aren’t too bad. Talk to you soon, L

    I am glad you made it to India safely and your trip began without incident. I am envious with a capital “E”! The mid life crisis when one turns 40 is a real monster with its longing for more adventure in life. You are accomplishing some of your friends deepest wishes. Ride safe. Take lots of pictures.

    He really meant to say he was circumcising India.

    OK. I knew Bari was an artist. And I knew he was a motorcycle enthusiast. And a father. Husband too. But Tigerbeat pin-up boy? Who knew that? Caliente! Looking good in those photos, Bari. I think you’ve just ended Kawasaki’s search for a spokesmodel. Ha ha. Hope all is well.

    Still Jealous.
    Interesting way to keep in touch.
    The world is so small.
    Be free.

    you’re beginning to float free
    You’re what the autumn knew would happen
    after the last collapse
    of primary colour
    once the last absolutes were torn to pieces
    you could begin

    I know nothing about it
    now that I watch you
    starting to give yourself
    away to the wind

    Do not forget to go to Chowpatty and eat the Bhelpuri and Kulfi falooda… oh also do not forget paan. If you get a chance go to a club called Olives in Bandra (Bombay). I grew up in this neighbourhood.
