Travelling the land of contradictions

09 August 2005   |   Anil Madhavapeddy   |   tags:   |   all posts

My Dad and I have been in India for over a week now, travelling across quite a few cities visiting relatives and catching up with friends. Our trip started in Bangalore, unfortunately for the funeral service a close family friend. Despite the reasons for going, Bangalore turned out to be the first city in India I would describe as "pleasant", with glorious sunshine and a temperature that was always just right!

I was pretty impressed with the pace of development there as well, with software development being outsourced there at a huge rate. However, despite the shining new Silicon Valley-style buildings, the infrastructure still needs a lot of work as traffic is insane and getting around the place is pretty tough (starting with the lame airport!). It's been 23 years since I was last here, and it's definitely been worth the visit. Dad and I are currently in Hyderabad, so here are a few pictures I snapped over the last few days.
