Lots of traffic in Bangalore so spent a lot of time in car, to be expected there. Did see Palace, Gardens and Bull Temple. Went solo and was a little nervous about that but the guide and driver where very friendly and took good care of me. They did stop at some shops which I didn’t mind although I felt slightly pressured to buy something. Otherwise good.
