  • In Bangalore

    Posted on June 19th, 2009 Sandeep 2 comments

    I landed in Bangalore last Saturday. Of course, if Air France was on time, I would’ve landed late Friday. Spanking new airport – liked it a lot. What else has changed in the city over the last 2 years since I moved? The new B-TRAC traffic management system, which apparently started last October. At the rate the number of vehicles is growing, this was badly needed – and it seems to be doing a good job. Lots of new signals, road dividers, one-ways, etc., all over the place.

    If it were the old Bangalore, the traffic would’ve been chaotic without traffic management in place. Now, it’s just added delays at the signal but the traffic keeps moving, which is a good sign. There are also more Volvo buses plying across the city. Pity there’s no direct bus to my office, otherwise I would’ve loved to use public transportation in the city.

    Didn’t know I missed Kaveri water so much. Hey, if I can survive tap water in Jersey City, I can drink tap water anywhere else in the world ;-)

    • Sadly Air France is one of the better major carriers. Though I agree that CDG airport is Hell’s waiting room.

      And, hey! There’s nothing wrong with Jersey City water! Try living in Iowa (or anywhere else rural), where the water is full of pesticides. Nasty.

    • Thank you for your feedback. We’re glad you liked Bangalore’s new airport :-)
