I am back!!

Hello all, I got back last week and still recovering from jet lag. I think I should be better in few days. I sleep in day hours and most of the time awake during the night. I am happy to see many cooking blogs which has come up in the last two months. My hours on reading blogs are more than spending time on something else. My visit to India was great! It was more of a reunion towards my family. Me and karthik went to kovalam and visited few temples in kerala and Trichy. I was able to do a 7 day course on art of living which is related to yoga and meditation. Overall the trip was fun with happy memories. Pictures of the place we visited.

Meenmutty Falls at Kallar, Trivandrum

Padmanabhapuram Palace Trivandrum

Sankhumugham Beach Trivandrum

Veli Lake Trivandrum


Adjacent to the Vivekananda memorial stands a 133ft statue of Thiruvalluvar

In a rocky island, stands a memorial dedicated to Swami Vivekananda

Cauvery river- Trichy

Bragatheeswarar Temple- Tanjore
