I seem to be consumed with lethargy these days. I am busy at work - but not with the 'good' stress. Sometimes when I am busy I am energized to do more. I call that good stress. Then sometimes its like this. I have a million little things to do and despite what I do I still have them. I am too lethargic to do anything interesting.

Anyway this post isn't about that. I traveled to Vizag this weekend. For a friend's wedding. It was an impulsive spur of the moment thing.

Vizag was beautiful. South India has such a beautiful coastline. The little hills breaking the monotony of the plains were a visual treat from above. I was stunned to see such good roads. Better than Bangalore. I must have commented on it multiple times.

The beach reminded me of Marina. Except here instead of the official buildings there were more sea facing apartments. I wondered if the tsunami had an impact on the cost. I walked on and stood facing the waves. The first kiss of the froth was cool. Later I walked the length of the beach, stopping from time to time to read.

Clouds spoiled my sunrise the next morning. Wedding was fun. Girls take way too much time to dress.

hmm..Vizag is an awsome place. Good roads than bangalore.. Guess the ratio is ok.. But b'lore is way too modern. Hope you visited the Dolphin's nore and the light house(its the second famous in asia,coz of the distance the light can be seen).. Maybe you stayed in the beachroad. B'lore has a lot o pollution rey,so,its a bit different when you come to vizag.
And no,tsunami absolutely didn't have ne effect or affect on vizag. My dad says that people were watching the waves sitting by the road. As far as i know,the sea level raised a bit,but didnt cross the harbour.Its a natural harbour na..so,it wudnt be much of a prob for us Vizagites.
Did you visit the Araku valley or the Borra caves or the zoo or secret lake?? there are many places for students in vizag than there are in b'lore,you should jus know your way around and Voila,its heaven. ;) Ciao! keep the blogs comming!
