Bye Bye Hollywood!

The Hollywood Sign

The Hollywood Sign

It has been a while since I’ve put an article. But then, this is not the first time it has happened. Well, a lot has happened over the last couple of months. A lot of travel, places and people.

So where have I been all the time and what have I been doing to find an excuse for now writing a post? I can answer the first, I was in Los Angeles/ Hollywood most of the time. But the second one…Hmmm..tough to answer. More than the work, it was the schedule which prevented me from posting something, in spite of so much happening around.

Finally I seem to have some time to put up a post (that is because I have to wait for my flight back to India for 3 more hours!). So all the while, I was living just a block away from the famous “Hollywood walk of fame”! Yes, the same place where people come from all over the world to have a glance at the entertainment capital of the west. How exciting! Well yes, it is, only if you have come as a tourist. It loses importance when you walk the same streets everyday, for two months. And that’s what happened to me. I remember almost every shop and restaurant along a mile, on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (on both sides of the road J). Anyways, that place is worth watching if you are in and around LA. Just walking on the road for about half a mile, you would witness an ambience which will remind of the best of Hollywood movies. The pirate, the hulk, the spiderman, the batman, spider woman, the mask man……….and the list goes on. Yes, these are the characters you would witness not once, not twice, but almost every time you walk down the street. And while you walk down the street, once every while, you can witness the famous ‘Hollywood’ sign on the hills. The trademark I must say.

Now when I am on my way back, I realize how lively that place was. I wouldn’t say I miss it, but it does deserve a mention here.

Currently, there’s nothing which can excite me more than getting back to India! Ah, how much I missed the Indian food, I can’t even describe. What and how did I manage to eat in the last couple of months deserves a post dedicated to it.

Hopefully I’ll settle into my regular schedule soon and find time to put some posts and catch up!


Marriage season

I have been trying to keep up with the pace my batch mates are getting married. Already attended 3 weddings in the last one month or so. Two more lined up in the next couple of weeks. And I couldn’t attend about 3 of them. So a total of 8. Wow!

It’s nice to take short breaks. Even though the travel is hectic, the mind gets recharged. I wish I could attend all.
