Our first stroll

On Brigade Road, one of the main commercial centers in downtown Bangalore. The shop is connected to Nilgiri's, an old and reputable bakery/food store. We're drawn to it by the smell of fresh tangerines and oranges. The road safety sign says "Speed is vicious. Life is precious."

Arriving in Bangalore

Outside Aunt Rhoda's house. We've just arrived. Uncle Ron and Aunt Premela picked us up from the airport. We are surprisingly awake for 36 hours of travel. It is Tuesday morning 8 AM Indian Standard Time at the time of these pictures. Within 25 yards of this spot are the Muslim Prince Aga Khan's headquarters, some goats waiting to be sacrificed at a mosque, a xerox copy center, a lawyer's office and a fruit stand.
