There you are... the helicopter flies off to a new destination. I am currently in the port town of Vishakhapatnam or Vizag as it is popularly called. This is a growing town with some (thankfully) clean beaches. After a hectic day's flying it is really great to go for long walks in the evening. The sunset on one of these walks was really lovely. Captured the scene on my camera and painted it in water colors in my room. This is what keeps me going. I enjoyed doing it, hope you also like it.

North India is famous for it's street food. Unfortunately most of the tourists shy away from it because of hygiene reasons. But let me assure you some of those avoidable looking stalls serve some real yummmmy delicacies. One of the dishes served at many places is a sweet called Jalebi. Though the earliest mention of this dish in Indian texts dates to 1450 AD but we are still not sure if we can lay a claim to its origins. A very similar dish is called Zulubiya in Iran, Zellabia in Lebanon and Z'labia in Tunisia. Any way, who ever wins, the final winner is this tasty dish called Jalebi. So next time you visit us do make it a point try it.
I hope you love this painting of a street food vendor and also get to enjoy his Jalebis. Have a fantastic year ahead.
