India Part I: Hampi

some text Hot off the press, as promised, here are some of my photos from the first place that we stayed, Hampi, the incredible ruined city of the Vijayanagara empire who ruled almost the entirety of South India between 1336 and 1565. The area is littered with opulent temples, political demonstrations of power and wealth as well as of devotion to the gods. A pretty magical and unforgettable place. Oh and the coconut and banana juices were excellent, too.

They were always slightly different from one another, though, and unfailingly tasty. And this one came on a banana leaf! Food was, of course, one of the hightlights of the trip for me and hopefully in some of the next few India instalments I will be bringing you recipes for some of the food that we enjoyed the most.
