I am from Mumbai and "Steemit" is what interests me, so I quickly RSVP'ed for the event because wanted to know the basics, in and outs of the Steemit platform as being a member since June and haven't done much yet.
I was already excited to go to Banglore just wanted the confirmation of the seat, in July of 28th I received an email that I've been confirmed as an attendee.
On 29 of July morning, got my train Udyan Express from Mumbai to Banglore City was travelling alone when I reached Banglore station on 30th of July which was event day. I was wondering which stop to get down finding which is the nearest station to the venue on Google Maps so, got down at KSR Bangalore, this was my first time in Banglore. One of my friend Kiran took me to the venue told already that I am coming to his city.
We took Metro from Kempegowda Majestic Metro station to Jayanagar from there we did breakfast and then dropped me by his bike to the venue Robert Bosch Indian HQ.
I met Kiran through online business six years ago so was meeting him after 6 years.
Pulav with Mendu vada and Curd.
