A day in the life of Joey

For those who don't know Joey... you can refer to this or this. He`s basically a good friend and a totally crazy fellow, and I was in Mumbai living with him over the weekend and what a blast... so here`s a day in the life of Joey... let`s make it a holiday.

Joey needs a reason to wake up in the mornings .. and what better a reason than the fact that you have booked tickets for the morning show... the tickets are booked the movie will play you might as well go and watch it.

So wake up grab a quick breakfast and off to the theater ... you walk in the movie plays you walk out and its still just a little past noon and you`re up and ready and have the whole day ahead of you.... so you head out for some lunch


followed by some 

along with some

and finally topped of with some 

With a full stomach and a hunger for some shopping (some times his some times some one elses) he will often head to the market with either the famous Momo 

or the hitherto unseen GC (there is a whole story there but that`s for another day)

Laden with shopping bags or at times bean bags Joey will head back home to drop off his latest acquisitions and refill the now almost hungry stomach but this it will be cooked in the kitchen of Joey (at times by him also)

Pancakes .. and they were good 

The day(light) is now over and its time for a serious night out and with Joey its not a matter to joke about he takes his laughter very seriously ... nothing but the first row at The Comedy Store ... so what if the comedians are soo absolutely brilliant that they will pick on you and pick on you and pick on you some more .... to Joey its no joke... Its A serious night out

What better way to end the night than a stroll with the Queen's necklace in sight 

A quick taxi ride 

and Joey heads back home ... back to his fish

and it was a helluva weekend :-)

Mumbai Talkies

The thing about Mumbai is that there are no real places to visit ... its not a place for sight seeing ... its not a place where tourists will tell other travelers go to Mumbai its heaven on earth ... but if anyone tells you that Mumbai is not picturesque... they are soooo mistaken... Mumbai is a typical city a single shot of pretty much any street will tell anyone who lives there that its a pic of Mumbai. So I'm going to let the photos talk and just give a common caption to the whole lot

"Mumbai Talkies"

A walk through Jodhpur

Last weekend I had a long weekend so I took a trip to Jodhpur... to college... but this time armed with my camera so this is what I brought back

Back to NLU

to the hostel

the mess arc

 The Flowers


 Yes flowers do bloom in Jodhpur

In other colours as well

Where there are flowers bees will follow

And they will be there

and get some nectar
and when one's having a nice time others will follow

and then there were the birds 

like they own the place (at NLU they kinda do)

and some wildlife 

some people 

some in restaurants

With some drinks

on the rocks

some shopping

some sightseeing

I went to Mehrangarh fort

was welcomed by the climber

A great place to sit and take in the city 

The blue city

The fort in all its glory

Ghanta ghar with extra long exposure

Just another day...

Another walk another day some random pictures along the way...
A picture with some weight

Green apple cooler

Believe it or not this picture is not in sepia or edited... its the natural light that gave this colour

and with a little bit of chalk and charcoal you can go back a few hundred years
