After a brief stop at Fort Cochin, an old port city of Portuguese, British and Chinese influence we arrived in Bangalore.

We came to Bangalore to visit Latha's cousin who is a dentist working here.  After arriving from the night train from Cochin and getting settled in, Latha call an old colleague that used to work at NovAtel.  He sent a driver to pick us up.  We all went out for a very fancy dinner (Bangalore is known for it's posh-ness), and had a great time catching up.  Mal and Shree are always a riot, and it was very interesting to hear what their lives are like back in India, and to get their perceptions on the economic boom in India.

We went back to Latha's cousin's house (Priya Acca's) to visit and play with their two year old son Rahul.  Rahul is a ball of energy and we had so much fun singing nursery rhymes, and dancing to Bollywood songs.  He speaks Kannada, but the universal language of fun was enough for all of us to understand each other.

Priya Acca's father-in-law owns a publishing house, and we got to visit his workplace one evening.  He sent us home with lots of books!
