Bangalore is India's silicon valley. It is a city of 6 million people located in Karnataka state, in southern India. It is
2000 km from Delhi and 1000 km from Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay).
I flew to India via SwissAir. I took an internal
airline called Jet Airways from Mumbai to Bangalore.

The main side trip I took was to Cochin (also called Kochi). It is the major seaport in a state called Kerala. This is a city
of 1.6 million people on the southwest coast of India, close to the southern tip. It is 500 km southwest of Bangalore, 1400
km south of Mumbai.

I traveled in several interesting ways on this trip. Here are pictures some of them.
