Bangalore Street Scenes

Some photos taken while in Bangalore :

Most of houses in Bangalore I see so far are similar to a 3 storey apartments.

Occasionally we'll come across a big mansion like this :

Or people living in slums like the below :

In terms of getting around, autos are being favoured over other modes of public transport. Else one would be driving a compact car or a motorcycle. Note that it is not mandatory for a pillion ride to be wearing a safety helmet, for whichever reasons I could not comprehend.

Devotees offering their morning prayers in a temple :

Water, water - We were told only to drink from bottled water in the hotel or reputable restaurants.

Don't be surprised if you see a cow in the city. Or a goat for that matter.

A traditional laundry shop in Bangalore.

Feeling thirsty? Have some coconut :

Wanted to munch on something? You can have some fruits...

... or roasted peanuts...

... or even some grilled corn on the cob!

If none tickles your fancy, you may want to consider some ice-cream instead :)
