A Day Out..Some Pictures....

Christmas is gone n new year is expected..in short it is holiday time..in this short span of time i get,i wouldn't miss a chance to roam around..and i did roam around..here are some pics of my day of exploration of my beautiful neighborhood..



yup..it is scenery all the way..i live in a place surrounded by scenic beauty..



the lake..one of the many..



The monastery in the hills..there are lots of Buddhist monks around the place i live ..the first monastery i visited was in coorg..dis is the 2nd one..it was peaceful,quiet and serene..couldn't get any inside pics as photography was prohibited...




The welcome board to the tea-estates...i like the names..singbulli and tingling...:D


China??Someone suggested it might be the variety of tea..the only explanation..




tea and tea all around...ne one for a cup??




"we need gorkhaland" slogans everywhere..Why divide and rule,i ask??



They said it was Tuph-ku..the local delicacy..for me,it was bland noodles and chicken in semi-soup-solid form..





The cold weather started setting in very very very early..



And finally the sun ready to go down,around 3.30..its an early bed-time for him nowadays...

That was an overall view of my surroundings...Its winter and it is getting very cold here during the nights..mornings are pleasant though..

But the last winters,in the heavenly state of jammu n kashmir ,the mornings were foggy and misty and cold...the best and the coldest ever...its nostalgic and i am reposting some pics again from my old post:..






My courtyard ,i guess around 1o in the morning...

Man,do i miss the J n K winters..Sob.. :(
