My book is on the printing presses – this is very exciting and an excuse for a quick plug in my blog!
In the book I emphasise the importance of using our senses in natural navigation. I cover examples from the sound of birdsong to the smell of trampled fruit in London.
I stumbled across a kindred spirit on the Internet this morning in Sachin Somanna, the author of this article about Gayathri Tiffin Room. It certainly smells from here like one of the joys of the Indian city of Mysore:
“We do not need any directions to reach Gayathri Tiffin Room (or GTR as it is popularly known) because once we close in on Chamundipuram circle, the irresistible aroma of a Mysore Masala Dosa works like a natural navigator to this vegetarian restaurant that is located just a few meters from the circle. Although the restaurant looks rather plain on the outside, the packed crowd inside negates this observation. GTR is filled with foodies digging into some varying and rather tempting South-Indian cuisine.”
