Friday photo: Macau

Think Macau and you think casinos and gaming chips, glitz and glamour. And lots of money flowing, much like water. Certainly, I went with that image in mind.

So I was pleasantly surprised to see these colourful facades, old fashioned markets, bargain shops and street foods on offer on one side of the town.

This Friday, and image from Senado Square, where I could have spent hours and hours, just people watching…

Friday photo: Kathmandu

After the terrible devastation caused by the series of earthquakes in Nepal this April, newspaper reports say that life is slowly limping back to normal. The Durbar Squares are still in a shambles but are now open to tourists.

This Friday, an image from the vibrant Durbar Square of Kathmandu…

Kathmandu

I was lucky enough to spend a few days in the Kathmandu valley late last year and was awed by the beauty and splendour of the temples and palaces of Durbar Squares of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktpur. It was all the more special because it was so unexpected. I had written about it for Destinasian magazine and it got published, ironically, just a few weeks before the earthquakes. I now think of it as my tribute to the rich cultural heritage of Nepal.
