Sunday,we went on a trip to Mekedaatu
About 90 Kms from Bangalore on the kanakpura road, lies the sangama of Rivers Arkavati and Cauvery. Its a local touristy place that I was visiting for the first time.


We started around 12.30 in the noon and reached Art of living around lunch time.. There is a restaurant called Vaishnavi Palace just before Art of Living main gates on the right side. Its very easy to miss.. just look out for a compound with these gorgeous flowers..
We were caught in some lovely showers.. for most parts, the climate remained awesome. 
There were many lakes full of lotus blossoms.. Found some natives using ingenious methods to pluck them.. 
 The winding roads,
 The faraway hills
 Occasional company.. meke ( goats )
