Excellent post. I was watching a bit of BBC after work and they were talking about Bangalore and how families are selling there ancestral land for high profits. Kind of sad really…

From the description, photos and video; if it weren’t for the people, signage, trash and COWS lol I’d might think you were in Viet Nam.

Bring me back a Lambretta! The three wheeled vehicles!

The photo of the building construction. It looks almost like a photo I took back in 1999 (construction wise) with the bamboo scaffolding. It’s amazing that they don’t tip over with the slightest breeze.

Probably re-read this a few times and ask a few questions later, but some of us have 3 1/2 more hours to work (ugh). I’m sooo jealous. Sounds like you are having a lot of fun and learning lots. Wish I could be there. Take care.
