Pumping water - a daily affair
While travelling through the villagers around Bangalore's outskirts, we saw this scene many times over.
Pumping water from a bore well, that a few villages share, and then carrying the water back to one's respective homes -- this is a daily affair in India's rural settings (this means anything from 20 min out of town to 2 hrs out).
Children and women are seen carrying water --- geez, what are the men doing?
[Aside: in confidence, I'll share that through many village centres, as we passed through, we saw men sitting around, standing at coffee shops, near the fruit selllers -- doing err, like hanging around and talking. It was an observation made by many travellers.]
Cappuccino Grande at Leela
Though we are fond of all the Barista's in the city, this one's our favorite. If you want some good ambience in which to sip your coffee forever, then head here! You can even take a walk on the lawn,as you wait for the coffee... A cup of Cappuccino and a nice warm Walnut Brownie

"North Indian Tucker, Yummy Phulkas"
A very popular place during lunchtime run by the same north indian couple for ages, delicious food, and one could eat many many phulkas, even if you are watching your carbohydrates and north indian curries..
"Are you Japanese?"
I had arrived in Bangalore from Tokyo.. with such abundance of excellent indian food available, Japanese food was not an option for me, and wont be for me unless I was in India on a very very long trip..But the choice is there for those bored with Curry and vegetables or those pretentious folks..
