Photos from my India Trip – Week 2 – Bangalore

Hi Everyone,

Well, this is part 2 of my India trip. If you missed part 1 (Chennai), then check it out.

Anyways, Bangalore was so much fun. This was my third trip to Bangalore so I have a good feel of the city. Also, I have a lot of coworkers / friends here so I was really excited to return.

During the week, I was mostly consumed with work. I was there to teach two classes on mobile app development. Just like the previous week, I had a great group of students and the training was a success.

While I was Bangalore, I stayed at the J.W. Marriott hotel. Oh my gosh, this hotel was fabulous. I had heard good things about it … but I’ve traveled and didn’t think much of the talk. However, when I stepped inside the hotel lobby, I was blown away. Excellent decor, tile and marble everywhere. The staff were super nice and went out of their way to make sure my stay was going great.

On the weekend, I went running in Cubbon park. I met up with a local running group and we did an 18k run. Whew, what a workout. We started in Cubbon park and then did most of the run through the streets of Bangalore. It was great to see the city on foot and it provided a unique perspective. The running group that I met were a group of super guys. They were totally nice and invited me back to run with them again. Once I returned home, I even hooked up with them on FaceBook and LinkedIn. Awesome group.

Anyways, enough talking from me … here are the pics. Enjoy 🙂
