My Bangalore Adventure


In the spring and summer of 2009, I had the opportunity to spend three months in Bangalore as a trainer for ThoughtWorks University. It was a wonderful time! Exasperating, urbane, amazing, outrageous, contemplative, raucous, friendly, timeless, intimidating, sacred, modern, despoiled, native. Too many contrasts to think of all the words. I may never get back to India again, but my memories and affection for the places and people I got to know run deep. These are my adventures.
