Good old Bangalore!  This place is yet another city where the cyber boom has taken control.  The only reason I came to this city was to meet Jamie Robinson friends.  Long story short,  a friend of mine from Montana (Jamie) use to work in Bangalore for 2 years, he just moved (to Oz) and is engaged to a girl from Bangalore.  I wanted to meet his friends, check out his city and meet his fiances sister.   The only problem with this plan is that Indians tend to work 6 days a week.  This leaves very little time to actually meet these people.  On top of this, all the bar close at 11:30! 
      Since there is not much to see in Bangalore I killed time by wondering around markets, checking out the cosmopolitan MG road and generally getting lost.  I went to a locals bar by myself (dark dingy cellar full of staring old men) where one night I was the honored guest and the next night received death threat for being white.....
Another fun thing I found on accident was market full of flowers that Indians buy and sell to make offering to the many Hindu gods.  It was pretty spectacular site until I was being pulled to the ground by my hair.  I turned around to punch whatever was doing it and found myself staring in the face of a teenage retard with a shit eating grin....  I never have formed a policy when it came to aggressive retards so I decided it would be better to walk away.  I guess this was a good thing because when I asked an Indian friend about it, he said that if I did throw a punch chances are I would get swarmed by a mob and beaten!
       I was able to meet a couple of  Jamie friends (Anup, Amita, Sindu and Monica) and they were all super friendly.  They showed me some really nice restaurants and clubs.  It was a good time but between their work schedule and everything closing early it was hard to hang out!
