I miss Peru so dearly. The place and the unforgettable conversations with strangers. The wholly unexpected fulfillment of the dream to visit Machu Picchu. The sleepless nights I spent trying to get my visa in time for my departure. It all keeps coming back every time I go through my collection of photos from Peru.
San Francisco is a city of incredible contrasts. One minute I would find myself walking through a glitzy section like Union Square and just a few blocks later something that felt so far removed from it. Ugly graffiti, poorly maintained streets and the distinct smell of weed following you everywhere you went.
Bhutan is an amazing destination for Indian travellers. No visa hassles, easy to get to and very light on the pocket. When I think about the word that comes to mind when I think about my trip there, it was peace.
When I first stepped into this area in Mumbai, I could not believe that I was still in the same city. If I had been beamed into the place, other than the presence of the Indian vehicles, I could easily have mistaken it for someplace in Europe.

I don’t usually try to capture birds on my pocket camera as this is usually an exercise in frustration. No matter the 30x optical zoom that it offers you need an insanely steady hand or a tripod to capture something like this. It took multiple tries but I just didn’t want to move on without a good shot of this beautiful bird.
I have stayed almost my entire life near this temple and yet I never made it until a few days ago to this particular one. I never visit temples for religious purposes but this is one nicely situated right by the Mula Mutha river.
