Our Son James Visiting India
Jim had the opportunity to spend a week at the Bangalore India Intel Facility as part of his  regular job at Intel in Folsom California.
Bangalore is known as the Silicon Valley of India due to all the high tech facilities there.

During non-working hours, Jim was able to do some sightseeing as can be seen from the following interior and exterior pictures of a grand historic building all the way down to a picture of a cow.  Cows are considered sacred in the Indian culture.

The East Indian culture is very different from our predominantly European based culture here in the United States. 
Of course, due to the many years of British rule, evidences of Europe are also seen in India.

Jim learned from an East Indian friend that Goa India is known as the Hawaii of India. 
This area of India, while close to Bangalore, was under the influence of Portugal for many years as opposed to Great Britain.

Goa has a very high standard of living compared to other areas of India. 
Goa is a popular tourist destination for native Indian and foreign tourists due to its natural beauty as well as many historic sites.
