October 12-18, 2008 My job took me to Bangalore, India for a week. Texas Instruments has been in Bangalore for at least 20 years. I stayed at a very nice hotel called the Ista Hotel. At the left is a sitting area in one of the lounges.
On this page are just some pictures I took around Bangalore and on Saturday. I had Sunday October 12 to recover from the back-to-back 9 hours flights from Dallas, and I took Saturday to look around a little before coming home. Here are links to pages I created for those "free" days:
Mass at St. Patrick's, Sunday October 12
Bannerghatta National Park, Saturday October 18
|These pictures on the left and right are from the streets of Bangalore. The little yellow "autos" are three wheeled taxis witha two-stroke engine. These guys are just fearless, along with the motor cycles, scooters, pedestrians and cows on these streets.|
This sign really caught my eye because of all the stray dogs in the streets
of Bangalore. I'm not sure how one extends a helping hand to control rabies, but I wasn't in a hurry to find out.
"MG" Road stands for "Mahatma Ghandi" Road, just in case you were wondering.
|These last 5 pictures were taken Saturday morning when my colleague from the local TI office, Gautam (pictured at the right) drove me to the national park which was south of Bangalore.|
