Indian ways may seem strange, but their hospitality is heart warming.
India could easily be a world competitor for the largest variety of vehicles on the road. A colorful assortment of cars, buses, bicycles, auto rickshaws, share autos, cycle autos, cows, goats and pedestrians struggle for space to move forwards.

Trippy Bangalore kept our social diaries consistently jam-packed during my final month. Flexible working hours at post-summer-camp also kept our wanderlust satisfied, visiting Madikeri, and God's own country'; land of the coconuts, Kerala. The volunteer work has slowed down after the summer camps, being in the office daily acquainted us properly with the core team of our project. My favourite, Bobby, was a ball of energy, liked to punch your arm or back in greeting.

Bangalore...is a brash, brazen, brouhaha (I can't help myself sometimes!) in the state of Karnataka, is a world away from Chennai and a concentrated example of what India is rapidly developing into. Every second person is a software engineer and enormous international businesses are rapidly consuming space and manpower, whilst the generation of young, skilled, single, educated and moneyed professionals are making the most of their well above average wages.

As much as England's temperature and determination to pelt you with rain and wind makes you curse the weather, disembarking BA flight 0035, has re-ignited my appreciation for the cold. The heat of India (even at night) hits hard. My home stay host, Achiah, told me that India has three seasons 'hot, hotter and hottest'. Currently we're in the hotter time of year and it's heating up for globally warmed summer. Surprisingly, the bible that is Lonely Planet, after promising the throbbing hustle and bustle of a city was betrayed by the quiet.
