I went on a 4 days business trip in Manila. I took some time wandering in the Taguig city area with my Ricoh GR to do some night photography. At first I was just walking around the Market Market area but then I found this amazing bus station fulll of the signature “Jeepney” public transport in Manila. So I spent almost an hour in this station trying to capture and get to know more about this place.

This is the second city that I have visited in Spain. It is quite different from Barcelona and somehow I like this place more than that. Photos were taken during the first day when I arrived in the city. I quickly grabbed my camera and rushed to Plaza de Espana and the sunset in there was beautiful after that I walked along the river side and try to capture something interesting.

A day trip to Agra, visited Tajmahal and Agra fort. Weather was so nice and Taj is absolutely stunning. It was like a movie scene, everything was kept like in the old days and nothing has changed except hundreds of tuktuk in that area. Horse cart, dress code and peoples’ facial expression are all blended in nicely.

I travelled to Chardigarh for a business trip and spent only 2 days here. They brought me to Rock Garden which is similar to Park Quell in Barcelona. And also I followed them to two temples and took some pictures of the local people. Surprisingly all of them are so friendly to me.

The temple provides free food and they asked if I would like to stay there for dinner. After playing around with the children I headed back to hotel. It is certainly an unforgettable experience for me and totally different from what I thought.

I spent two days in Ella in total. Originally planned to visit Lipton seats and other places near Ella, but due to the heavy rain, I stayed in town and revisited the Nine Arches Bridge and walked around the local suburb.

After having a late lunch in the restaurant, weather was bad and started raining again. So I quickly rushed to the Nine Arches Bridge. Luckily the train was delayed and I got myself a seat and chat with other visitors and wait for the train to arrive.

I went back to hostel earlier than usual. Spent some time alone and had dinner with other backpackers. The dinner was delicious and prepared by our hostel owner. The next day I headed to Tissamaharama for Safari and cycling around the city.
