Cubbon Park in Bangalore was a good place to run. It is relatively flat with what appears to be (at first run) a maze of streets. But after running in the park for two days it was easy to navigate and find my way back. I did notice that many of the men who were walking in the park carried a "nightstick" and I wondered why until one morning I was chased a short distance by a pack of dogs. They gave up pretty quickly and it only happened once over the two weeks I ran there. My hotel was about 4 blocks away and the sidewalks can be a real hazard so I frequently ran along the street. I ran between 5:30 a.m. and 7 a.m. and there were quite a few men and women out walking at that time. I only saw a few runners and to be honest not many of the people were friendly even if I spoke first.
