Hello from Bangalore

Foreign Travel Market, umi hotels % Comments

Hey guys. A quick hello from Bangalore India , where I attending the a travel show. Has all been a bit of a whirlwind few days where I have been to the IPL cricket, then a few bars and today spent the morning and early afternoon with some lovely people sightseeing followed by a chill by the pool in 35c heat. Had a snack in the bar and watched Liverpool which was rather disappointing.
So India / Bangalore is a wonderful place. Although there is poverty there is a buzz and optimism to the City. There is a hustle and bustle and have thoroughly enjoyed both the culture and the food (you know how important the food is)! I hope to keep you posted with some more exciting things over the next few day. Take care and as some people know me as. Stevie bhai!

The experience has been wonderful and really hope that the work and help done both at the guesthouse , and at the charities, will be fruitful for all parties. Read the rest of this entry »

Well another inspiring day seeing what people do here and the Sala Bai Hotel School was no different (http://www.salabai.com) .

I first went there for lunch and had a lovely two course Asian inspired meal cooked and served by students. Delicious , well presented and served with a great big Khmer smile!
