I will be off for a week. I am going on a vacation to Alike and Puttur, near Mangalore. My aunts stay in these places and I am really looking forward to spending some time with them.

Alike is a remote village near Mangalore. But this place is well known because of the educational institutions. In fact, this place consists of only educational institutions run by Sai Baba's devotees. These schools and colleges have boarding facilities. So you will find that all the students are from different parts of Karnataka, and sometimes outside Karnataka too. The houses that you find in Alike are mostly occupied by the school and the college staff. Yes, my uncle is a lecturer in one of these colleges and hence I get to visit Alike. The schools and colleges here are model educational institutions and their students definitely set very good examples. Their discipline and cleanliness are noteworthy.

Okay, but Alike is not one of my favourite places just because of these institutions. I love this place coz it is so very rich in nature, so very untouched. Yep, I am a total village belle and I am in total love with any rural place.:))
