Downtown Disney!!!

Downtown Disney is a small area nestled between the two Disney resorts in Anaheim, California. Its a beautiful, cozy place filled with shops and restuarants. We were there yesterday and had a ball! We reached there in the afternoon when not much was happening, and we flitted in and out of half a dozen shops without buying anything. Towards evening the place magically started filling up, and by late evening it was crowded and chock full of people. There were live performances, and a huge huge crowd at the House of Blue. The atmosphere was amazing, the evening a bit chilly, but cozy under the gas burner where we sat at Tortilla Jo's sipping wine and later enjoying a good dinner.

Happened to catch some fine performances by Drew Tretick. Of course, I had never even heard of him, or his music before. I mistook him for a (very talented) street performer. He plays the violin and his music was impeccable. It was enrapturing. I took some photos of him and even made a couple of videos of his performance. He is awesome. Turned out that he's an internationally recognized star!

Around the world in 80 days?

Its strange. Did my stars every foretell that I would be travelling to so many cities around the world, see so many places, meet so many people? I'm in LA now, a beautiful city indeed. I've photos from all over the world... San Francisco, Haifa, Cairns, Tel Aviv, Chicago, Singapore, Istanbul, Boston, Taiwan.

Every place has a unique culture, a unique look. Be it the summer holiday look of Cairns, the fast-paced-sky-scrapered look of Chicago, or the colonial look of Singapore, the laid back look in San Francisco, night-life look of Tel Aviv or even the boston-brahmany look in Boston.

A toast to more such travels.
