We reached Hosapete bus terminal early morning on Sunday and from there took a regular government bus to Hampi. While there are many hotels at Hosapete, I would advise tourists to find a room in Hampi. We found a decent two sharing room for Rs. 500 per night, freshened up and got out into the Hampi morning to explore the place.
My friend Ramu was waiting at the Bus Station to receive me and take me to his home. Friends are really God Sent Angels on Earth. Hot water was waiting for my tired bones. Whether it is AC, Non AC, Sleeper or Volvo, bus journeys always are very tiring. But frankly, I still prefer buses to trains. I find train journeys boring.
