I went to Brigade Road last night. Shops stay open in Bangalore until 10pm every night so there is always somewhere to go after work. Brigade Road is one of my favourites because of the street lights. They have a lot of ‘upmarket’ shops here…
I also went to Cauvery Handicrafts on the corner of Brigade and MG Roads where I bought some earings. They have a huge range of amazing handmade products.
I visited Pottery Town in Bangalore today. Wooo, hoooo…..
Pottery Town was born when the Government gave 60 potters a designated area on a 30-year lease and 23 families are in business here. It’s really only 1-2 streets, but still totally worthwhile visiting if you love pottery.
Many potters were at work, so I got to take different photos covering almost the full lifecycle, i.e. making the clay, wedging the clay, throwing, drying, firing, glazing etc
I had a driver take me there as I still have no idea how to get around and I stick out like anything. The traffic is crazy…cows and goats everywhere on the roads. The driver also walked with me around the potters as I kept getting in the way of the rickshaws, cars, cow poop etc. He is trying so hard to be my tour guide, telling me lots of stories but I have no idea what he is saying. Can’t make sense of his accent.
