Things in Bangalore I won't miss
- Aggressive beggars
- Aggressive retailers (who sometimes are so aggressive you can't focus on their merchandise)
- Cracked sidewalks
- Stray dogs who may be rabid
- Fear of disease or accident
- Auto-rickshaw drivers who try to cheat you or take you to a handicrafts shop
- Power cuts
- Washing dishes by hand
I realize as I write this that it may be hurtful to some and may seem like the complaints of a pampered Westerner. There are legitimate reasons for much of the above -- poverty, a chronic shortage of power, etc.
But these things still impinge on you and can sometimes wear you down. In my next post, I'll write about the things I will miss.
