I did not have a brilliant week in Bangalore. However, the streets and sights are most interesting.
Elaborate temples fill nooks and crannies throughout the streets.
Here you can see how the temple blends into the landscape.
I tried to explain to her that frowning uses more muscles and actually takes more effort than smiling. Clearly she does not have extra calories to waste on frowning. But she didn’t speak English and just wondered why this lunatic foreigner was speaking to her. But you can see her child-like joy here after I gave her some money to take her photo. Heart-warming.
A portable shrine moving through the streets on Sunday morning. I have a video of this too.
India has a lot of people. Streets tend to be busy.
It was not at all apparent what this equipment was hoping to accomplish on this narrow lane. Was is dropped in by helicopter? Has it been abandoned?
Whatever the case, it certainly works as a traffic-block.
A neighborhood wedding. The colors are made of flowers and yarn.
My favourite sign. Useless, but great to see.
Someone missed the sign. Or they decided not to complain instead.
A cow having lunch. The holy animals of India enjoy a constant buffet of plastics mixed with rotting compost.
I love this home, it’s kind-of magical in its dilapidation, it looks as if from a movie.
A flood way?
I love street art. This is in a park.
“Do not sit or walk on the grass.”
Is this like a “no u-turn” sign? Is it okay to urinate everywhere else?
So this is convenient, but what about the girls?
You can buy your child happiness in India. Isn’t that wonderful!
Sad to need to be on a sign.
It seems like the wording on this sign is too specific.
My room in Bangalore. It’s much dirtier than it looks.
I just took this photo in the coffee shop where I have been working on this blog.
It’s a kitty! On a sidewalk! (I know, doesn’t look like one!)
The main commercial strip of Brigade Road.
Some drunken optimist came up with this road sign!
The choice of Indian Monks.
There are some amazing trees on Bangalore. You will see them prominently in my “wires” posting.
Fantastic traffic barricade!
Stray dogs are everywhere and they all seem really friendly.
His ears, being equal, look intentional.
They sleep in the oddest places, this was a really busy spot of sidewalk in the main commercial zone.
This was on a pole at a construction site.
I didn’t see the middle-class suburbs, but this downtown construction clearly is. These are condos.
I wonder if an entire guitar was originally attached to this tree?
