Filling a Drumlin-Sized Gap

This is almost the last post from my home in Bangalore. The packers were here yesterday.

And there are gods and flowers on the car dashboard to protect travellers.

If you are still keen to hear about life in Bangalore, and you need something to fill the drumlin-sized gap, I recommend clicking through to these blogs.

Bangalore Blogs

The author of Kittie’s Vindaloo moved to Bangalore recently. Read on to see if the city lives up to her expectations, somewhere between the sublime and the ridiculous.

All kinds of Bangalore subjects are covered by Bangalore – Nature and Life, not least the local birds, bugs, wild boars and squirrels.

For more birds, go to Residual Thoughts.

And I must plug the blog written by my friend Helen, who moved from England to California, and then to Bangalore. She writes about the exotic and the school bus on Towers Take a Trip.   Get there quick, before she too leaves Bangalore.

Other Blogs on WordPress with Indian Connections

Read about Mumbai as seen through the eyes of a longterm expat: Everyday Adventures in Asia.

If I can’t sleep on the distant drumlin because it’s too quiet, I may replay the recordings of Bangalore sounds on World Listener.

Random Recommendation of another Blog

Nothing to do with India, just high-quality photos of Canadian wildlife presented with a high-quality sense of humour: Krahnpix.

    Now that is a very good question. For the boxes in that truck, it’s Chennai, then a ship, then Belfast.

  4. Good list! Wish I’d had this back a few months ago when we were planning our trip. Still, there have to be some surprises.

    Can’t believe the packers have come and gone! Best of luck with the move.

      Thank you. Enjoy the Bangalore climate! Last week I was walking on sunshine, and swimming in the outdoor pool. London right now is dark from 4.30pm to 7.30am. I wish I could have packed the Indian sunshine (without the mosquitoes and ants).

    I hope Distant Drumlin’s readers find their way to your hawks and bison and bears. There’s something great about sitting in tropical India, reading blogs about snowy Canada.
