Lavish Year to come to an end…

boo.. hoo…
But it’s been an ass kicking 2005…
too lavish!
one last day, few hours perhaps and bam– its rock n roll time!
it’s been an amazing past few days…
Christmas in Mela Ground Ferris Wheel to sidewalk veggie momos.
Relli Khola swimming to walking the never ending uphill.
Life is good!
Started 2005 in Times Square, NY
Ending in Bong Busty, Kpg!
let the journey continue…

Christmas Eve

…in good ol’ Bong Busty, Kalimpong.

The place where our forefathers and their friends played,
The place you feel nostalgic about even though you have always lived away.

As unassuming as it seems, it’s been happening.

From Damsang Gadi to Pujey Danda,
Reshi Khola fishing to Reli Khola viewing,
Royal Enfield riding to never ending walks,
The fun never ceases.

Christmas Day tomorrow!

(odyssey, kpg supermarket)

’tis our sleepy town

without doubt!
it is indeed Kalimpong…

a little hip as trendy teenagers walk down the main road,
a little happy as the fair is set up in mela ground.

a little chilly as the winter wind prompts layered clothes,
a little chirpy as the clear skies present snowy peaks.

all a little too comfy,
all a little too snazzy.

it is indeed Kalimpong…
without doubt!

City of Blinding Lights

…last night in Kathmandu for 2005.

“The more you see
The less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then than I do now

And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground

Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

The more you know
The less you feel
Some pray for, others steal
Blessings are not just for the ones who kneel, luckily
