welcome to bangalore

AFTER A 26 hour journey I arrived at 3:00 in the morning to Bangalore airport.   The first time I landed in India I wandered dazedly around the outskirts of the terminal for a while, this time I whisked myself off in an air-conditioned cab to Indiranagar, my neighborhood in eastern Bangalore.

IMG_0244Although it’s a week into my trip now the jet lag is still killer.  I can’t sleep through the whole night and get deathly groggy by day.  My room, small and purple, is on the top floor of a marble building on a leafy street.  Indiranagar is a very pleasant neighborhood but there is a metro being built right through the middle of it, so the street is torn up and the loudest work is done, for some reason, in the middle of the night.

IMG_1788One of the lovely things about South India is the food.  It’s paradise for anyone who loves vegetarian food – spicy, rich, flavorful vegetarian food especially. This is sambar idli – spongey rice cakes with tamarind flavored broth and coconut and chili chutney.
