It was 11.30pm around , my bus from coorg reached at Bangalore at satellite bus stand.There were a few people at bus stand.I was so scared. Bangalore is different in night as compared to Pune. Lonely roads, less people.. !!! I called that hostel guy "Sidharth" that I will be reaching there in half and hour, though I have not booked it previously online.
So, I booked an OLA to my hostel "Electric Cats Bed and Breakfast Annexure". It took nearly 20 mins to get a cab because OLA driver was not able to find the location and He didn't know Hindi and English much !!
Finally got a cab.I was hopping that hostel should allow me at this time.Secretly, I was praying to reach asap. Empty roads of Bangalore was scaring me alot..!!
I reached my hostel, called Sidharth, he came to pick me downstairs. Previously, I was staying in "Electric cats beds and Breakfast", their other hostel and this time in annexure.
I am glad that he allows me at this odd time.He said we will do entry formality tomorrow morning as its too late now, You can sleep, he showed me my DORM(Dormitory) and washroom and told me there is one girl staying in the that DORM too.
I saw some clothes in a bed opposite to my bed. I thought must be an Indian girl...!!. So I did not think that much as I need to spend only one night...I got freshened up.Sitting in my bed, I was thinking how to spend a day in Bangalore. I already roamed alone one day in Bangalore, on the day before going to coorg. So, I was just thinking about the places where I can go.
And here a girl enters in the room, We exchanged our glances, but we did not speak, she took some stuffs from her locker and went back and after some time came again...
Then she said "Hie !!!", I look at her..said hi...she was looking like an Indian somewhat but she wasn't.
I asked her whats your name..? She said I am Sarah !!!
Then I started asking about her country and why is she here..She was from France and was on a year long trip all over the world, I was shocked !!! I said Oh My GOD....I was so surprised at that movement that I started asking her lots of questions...Then she told me that she quite her 2 year job at France and will be travelling to the places all over the world for the one year SOLO !!!!
And she chose INDIA as her first destination to start her one year long trip..I was so proud to be an Indian at that moment..I smiled because I got my travelling companion for next day. I told Sarah that she can join me for visiting places in Bangalore, I thought she wont come but she said "YES" !! I thought as a formality she just said yes...next day she wont come..Then we slept...but she told me if I am going after 10am then she can come,She can not wake up early and visit places. I said dont worry I too cant do the same..
I woke up at 9am. Got ready and Then I came back to room , what I saw she was waiting for me for the breakfast.. It was so cute... !!
We went to the other branch of hostel where I stayed previously Just 5 mins away from this hostel. Then the receptionist said we had only dosa for the breakfast..
We ate dosa together, than booked a cab and first went to Bangalore palace.At Bangalore place, security was asking me is she foreigner or not. Because there were other charges for entry fee for foreigners in India for visiting historical places.I told him she is Goan :)
