Thilak had been to Mekedatu before and I had been till Sangama. Both of us wanted to go to Mekedatu again, but I was scared if I could go in bike for a long distance (around 200 km, to and fro). Finally, I made up my mind and decided to go to Mekedatu on 7th Dec on bike. We had our breakfast in Jayanagar and left at 7.00 AM. We took the beautiful Kanakpura road to reach Mekedatu.
