Drive through…Anaheim Hills

Well, sometimes its nice to just drive through a place and soak it in. The roads, the hills, the trees, the sunsets are some of the beautiful things that one can capture during a long drive…well I tried to do that when I was in California, which is very scenic and a very pleasant weather make its even more perfect.

It was not just the beauty of these Anaheim hills that fascinated me while I stayed there, it was also amazing how so many freeways and highways interlinked together eased out the huge traffic leading them in various directions…the landscaped roads and secluded houses on the hills made me think how every small thing adds up to make life easier, comfortable and more pleasant for people in a country.

I wanted to appreciate the engineering behind these freeways, the maintenance of a very clean environment with a lot of natural beauty, the landscaping around the cities and ofcourse those beautiful houses far far away on the hills.

While I wait for another time when I will be fortunate enough to travel to this place again… I thought I will share with you some shots from that picturesque drive through the hills.

States Unlimited…Newport Beach, California

Well its both embarrassing and encouraging to start with my new post today… embarrassing, as I have been missing forever from blogging and encouraging because of those who have commented, followed my blog and some who have liked my facebook page. Well I’m so charged after coming back here.

To begin with…a lot has happened since my last post…getting used to the American life for the past few months…well it seems like I’ve been living a life of contrast.

It is not so different since the big cities like Delhi in India are very fast…the traffic, the malls, the movies, the big buildings…however, I usually travel many times to the rural areas of India, which are so different and completely opposite of the Western life; and even in the cities you can never pretend that things are completely like in a developed country.

There have been many instances in the US that have moved me to think of those still suffering in the developing world in more ways than one….There is lots to share from this rather long trip that I have taken to the United States…however first things first…my last series has to complete and so I bring to you pictures from Newport Beach, Los Angeles, USA.

Now that I have experienced both the pacific ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, I could tell you if you wish to freshen up especially during the summers with chilled water, then head to the pacific. On the other hand if you wish to stay longer on the beach and play with the waves without worrying about catching cold then Gulf is best suited for you since the water is so pleasantly warm.

However, coming from India which is hot most part of the year, I would prefer the pacific like in Newport which was icy cold though the warm water of the Gulf had me immersed in it forever….those pictures are yet to come….may be in the following posts.
