Arrival in Bangalore India
After flying all the way to Frankfurt for a connecting flight (multiplying my travel time by roughly 3), I arrived in Bangalore at 1:30 (AM).
I was told that I would be picked up by a driver from my hotel. At first glance, I wasn't able to find him. But after withdrawing some money from an ATM machine I went and looked for the driver again, and this time I saw the sign for me.
The ride over was pretty uneventful (though it is unsettling to be on the left side of the road, even just as a passenger). The route we took seemed to be going around in circles, but we got here eventually. We managed to pass by some big modern buildings, though on the whole the buildings we passed were low, mean and quite dilapidated. Things built wily nily.
Once at the hotel, I immediately went to take a shower. As you can see from the picture, I won't be soaking too much in the tub :-). Unfortunately, there was no hot water! Oh well. At least it was not freezing cold. And the most important thing at the hotel is working: I have WiFi to connect to the internet. So I'll manage.
That's all for now. I'm going to rest up for my one day of seeing some sights in the city tomorrow.
