There is a statue on the lobby where they light incense every morning. I'm sure this is one of their deities but I don't know which one.

Separated from the Street

The driveway is separated from the main road by this decorative wall. Driving here is like Mexico - no real rules. It's like a crazy ballet. I'm surprised how agile everyone is in their vehicle. And their depth perception is unreal.

The Entry

Every time you enter you have to walk through the metal detector and your bag goes through a screener.

The Garden

Much more impressive from the ground floor. This is the open terrace where you are dropped off and picked up. The lobby entrance is off to the right.

My view

Overlooking the central garden. The weather is warm and for the most part has been sunny. A few rain drops the first day but otherwise nice. Days are in the 80s and evenings about 73.

My Dot

It matched my shirt. It was simply a bit of paprika.

The Lobby

We arrived in the early morning on Tuesday. After traveling for 30 hours we were greeting with a traditional Indian welcome - a prosperity dot.

Leela Palace

In India this week. This is our hotel in Bangalore.
