17-19 January – Hampi, India

On our way to Hampi we passed the chili-growing belt. We sneezed as we passed the many women sorting and drying the red chili fruits.
Hampi is a popular stop on the backpackers’ circuit through India/Nepal. It is a relaxed place, with plenty of places to chill out and an abundance of ruins to admire. In the 15th century, Hampi was a major city of almost half a million souls. Now it is mainly a banana plantation with wonderful temple ruins scattered among balancing boulders.
