Fantastic Indian Independence Day In Los Angeles, CA – Some Videos

I’m just recovering from a crazy week after Indian Independence Day in Artesia, CA (in the Los Angeles area).  I loved the craziness actually, and why not?  After all, it’s not every day that my videos get over 100,000 views in a matter of days.  Well, this time it happened, but it was quite unexpected.  Currently, my video has 178,895 views.

I shared my video a few days ago (the one that got all the action, and attention), so I won’t share it again here.  However, I would like to share my other videos, and hope you will watch them.

First, let me share another picture of the beautiful Raveena Tandon.  I hope she comes back soon to Los Angeles or San Diego, and I hope she gets the star treatment that she deserves.

Most importantly, I take and make videos because I enjoy it.  I take pictures because I enjoy it.  I post because I enjoy it, I tweet and pin pictures because I enjoy them, and I attend cultural events because I enjoy them.  It’s all in the enjoyment, and it’s all just a hobby.

In the next post, I will share more pictures of the actual event.

Star Of India – Star of San Diego

I like to think that I have something in common with the Star Of India.  After all, I’m Indian, live in San Diego and was born and raised in England.  Well, the Star of India was put together on the Isle of Man in Great Britain, and now calls San Diego home (just like me).  As to why she has “India” in her name, you can read more about that here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_of_India_(ship)

Here are more pictures of the Star Of India:

By the way, these pictures were taken with my Canon G10.  I still can’t decide if I like pictures taken with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 better or with the Canon G10.  If you have any comments on what you prefer – the pictures on this post (taken with the G10 or the other Star of India post taken with the Note 3), please let me know.

The Star of India can be found berthed on North Harbor Drive, near San Diego Lindbergh International Airport.  You should not visit San Diego without visiting the Star of India – after all she could easily be the Star of San Diego!

Treats From Around The World

I don’t like tricks much at all, but I certainly like treats! Today, I will share some virtual treats with you, and I hope you will enjoy them.

Treats from USA: I love chocolate, so here is a picture of a great chocolate factory that produces terrific chocolate.  Enjoy!

Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory, San Francisco, CA

Treats from Italy: I love tea, but can’t produce any great pictures of tea, and since I also love cappuccino, here is one for you (let’s pretend this picture was taken in Italy, but it really was taken in England). Enjoy!

Cappuccino – Harrod’s, London

Treats from England: This is a picture that was taken by my son Luca, and he won a prize for it at his school in a photography competition.  I am so proud of him!  I know that a lot of kids the world over will be eating this type of candy on Halloween. Enjoy!

Treats from India: Okay, so this next one….I didn’t go to India to take the picture, I took it closer to home in Artesia, CA (close to Los Angeles), but still….these are sweets of India, and they’re delicious! Enjoy!

Sweets of India

I can’t share any more treats with you, as I think that’s enough treats for one day.  Also, as I looked through my pictures, I couldn’t help but think that I should have taken more pictures of food from my travels around the world, why didn’t I take pictures of fish and chips when I lived in England, or pasta when I was in Italy, or Indian food when I was in India a long time ago, or even a picture of any type of food in Jamaica?  That could be a reminder for us all – you never know when you might need those pictures or the virtual treats.  Enjoy your treats everyone!
