I'm in a foreign land...!

And I have to say, it isn't as bad as I thought!

Which one? I've been to a few myself. Japan and the Philippines were pretty nice. Iraq and Afghanistan not so much, but I managed to have a good time anyway.

Though, I should see if I can find a tailor out here.

I'm in India. Other than the humidity and traffic, it's been pretty enjoyable. I'm going to explore more of this place later today, including a shopping area that is only 1KM from my hotel.

Bangalore Traffic - YouTube

I have some more videos I'll upload later.

Traffic is... Nuts. There are no rules over here, at all. In many instances, there were 3 marked lanes, and there were 5 cars next to each other. Saw cars going the wrong way several times (actually saw a tractor go the wrong way once!), and it's just general chaos. It really does make LA, Texas, and New York look take.

I'll snap some more pictures of the cars tomorrow, but the majority of them are made by Mahindra and Tata. I've seen a few VWs, MBs, Chevys, Toyotas, and Hondas, but they seem to be pretty rare.
