Engaging walks...

Went for a walk to Connaught Place.
I am now at least half-a-kilo lighter after the long walk ;)
Clicked like there's no tomorrow.
Went on to Sitaram Bazaar in Old Delhi.
Glided past some beautiful old houses.
In them, lies the real heritage of Delhi.

They can give the so-called posh houses of South Delhi, a beauty complex.
Saw a netaji ki rally. Pooh Pooh at that!
Ate some real good street food. Kuremal's Kulfi and Baburam's golgappe for the records.
Long Lovely Day.
Ended it with a warm water foot-soak, followed by a generous splash of refreshing peppermint spray on the tootsies.
So, this is how I celebrated Pea-NUT's birthday.
Notes to the self: Pliss walk more often. Pliss wear sneakers daily. Pliss Pliss Pliss.

Nice! Although I didn't get it how someone can go to CP and lose half kg! If I went to CP, I would lose half kg from the walking and gain two kg from all the eating!

Aditi ''Jiggs'' said...

heyaaa
been to cp a loota times myself but its looks so good in the pics
never saw it thru the lens

wao it is good:)
cheers

dharmabum said...

keventers, yeah, thats the one.

the last time, i also went to this place, again in CP - think it was called coffee house or something, but it was a full fledged restaurant, and whats more, they also served booze. now what more can bums ask for, excepting of course, i found it a tad expensive for bum standards! :))

Mystique said...

photos all came adha-adha on my comp. still, what I saw, I liked.
I gotta do that sometime. learn to see the ordinary differently.

and reno has a slight point about focus. ESPECIALLY the blue doors pic.
but who'm I to talk.....
