For the first time, I'll be going to India soon. I leave at the end of this week, and I'll be back just before Thanksgiving. I'm very excited and very nervous about this trip. It seems that this will be a major part of my career development. It will also be chaotic working hours, as I'll be meeting with different departments that work all different hours of the day. Many are suggesting that I try to work UK hours, due to the natural overlap that GMT possesses, but alas, I'm already in meetings that will start at 9:30 local time, so .. that probably won't work. At least not for my first week.
One thing I remember pretty clearly from my China trip is that I was pretty lost for the first month I was there. However, I didn't really know anyone locally there. In India (thankfully) I already have some friends that I can rely on to help me through.
I also have a slightly better camera for this India trip (one that fits even more easily into a pocket), so I'll be doing my best to post some photos of Bangalore. A friend I have there said, "but there isn't much to see here". So, maybe you won't see a lot of photos. Here's hoping.
Sadly, I won't have a chance to travel outside of Bangalore while I'm there.
