Mad Mike off to Bengaluru on May Day

SOS IN MORSE CODE. Or May Day as it’s called here. The May trees are beginning to blossom in England like there’s no tomorrow, the swifts from sub-Saharan Africa ,or in real English south of the desert, are beginning to arrive ‘ere in ‘arrow after their long and very puzzling journey.

And I will arrive in Ole Bengaluru on the 2nd of May to launch yet another magazine, despite my feeble protests to the contrary. May is probably the hottest month in Karnataka, but Bangalore’s monsoon arrives in June. Up on the plateau it is really never too horrid, partly because of the plateau and because of the beautiful trees that line its boulevards. Also, if you look to the links on the right, you will see that Ole Bengaluru has the highest concentration of pubs in India.

Airport Road is very dangerous for pedestrians though…. θ
