Finally by 1 we reach the main city of Chikmaglur. The land of coffee! Interesting fact i read online: It is said that Baba Budan, a 17th century Sufi saint from India, had planted the first seed of coffee after returning from his pilgrimage to Mecca. Another disappointment here. Listening to my friend, i had booked nothing. Even after being a control freak, this time we decided to be spontaneous and just go with the flow. After spending 5 hours on the bike, we waited on a crossroad, in the heat and decided where should we stay. and of course we couldn't choose the best. There was nothing really wrong with the hotel we chose. But i think we should choose the accomodation based on the place. For Chikmaglur, homestays are the best. What we chose was right in between the city, without any greenery around, not at all serving our purpose of traveling this far. But it was clean, service was prompt, everything else was great. We took a little rest, took a shower and left to fill our stomachs. We should have asked the hotel staff for recommendations because we ended up having bhurji pav and egg fried rice instead of the local food. Internet did not help much here. Zomato if you are listening, please start your services in chikmagalur!
