Inside the Mahabaleshwar temple there is also Tamra Gauri Temple where the style was similar to Bhadrakali temple. To see the deity one has to go inside, take a turn and see. As the idol is facing against the door.
With the temple tour done, we set off to beach, sat in wet sand, made our shorts wet, walked to nearby lane and ate everything that we could. Almost everything tasted horrible but nevertheless we wanted to taste everything. In spite of that we wanted to have an official dinner so we had it in another Pai restaurants. Almost all the restaurants in Gokarna are named as Pai, don't know why. John bought some dress. Even I liked few but wasn't in a mood. I generally can't buy before the trek as it'd keep running in my mind.
Post our dinner we took a couple of autos and retired to the room. I went to another room to give instructions were Balaji had told ditto of what I'd be telling. The conversation went like this...
Seena: Cards vilayadlama da? (Shall we play cards?)
Me: Onum Vena (Not needed)
Laughs all round.
Me: Mooditu thoongunga da (Shut the fuck up and sleep.)
Seena: Balaji sona moonu vishaythula rendu solitae da. (You told two of the three things that Balaji told you'll say)
Me: Inonu enadhu? (What's the other thing?)
Seena: Nalaki kalaila 5 maniku ezunthirikanum. (You've to get up at 5 AM tomorrow)
I said the same, asked them to be ready by 6 AM and the day ended with higher laughters. Not before Jana called and invited me for marriage and there was some marriage talks along with that with John.
Even the people who visit holy places wouldn't have visited so many temples but I somehow get to visit them all before or after the trek and that too with free food.
Day 2 - Beach Please!
We started the day as planned at 6 AM. I was having mild headache and slight cold. Everyone had gotten ready by 6:40 for so. We started from our place at 7 AM. There was nothing available in the restaurant so we took whatever snacks we had and started walking.
