Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary – situated fairly close to Mysore in Karnataka state, is a bunch of small islets on the River Cauvery. Every year the sanctuary becomes an active nesting ground for thousands of migratory birds from various parts of the world. Photos from my visit.

Amsterdam…quaint & charming houses, the River Amstel flowing through it, a city of beautiful canals & graffiti…one can’t help but click it!
Seoul, South Korea some years ago. During my trip to Seoul, I visited Deoksugung Palace, also know as Deoksu Palace, with a history dating back to the 1400’s.
Key photographs below include Deoksu Palace, statue of King Sejong, the Heungcheonsa Bell & Water Clock. While I am no historian, there is a ton of history on the Palace available on the web.
Walking around town, I spotted a man, a real friend of sparrows – was amazed watching those birds eat from his hand.. see below.
Photographs apart & strictly for the stout-hearted only, I would recommend Sam Gae Tang, a form of soup which consists of a whole young chicken stuffed with rice, ginseng & other herbs…I know not what. It is an experience!
I was also able to attend a great service at the Yoido Full Gospel Church founded by Pastor David Yonggi Cho – it is the world’s largest congregation.
Korea has an efficient subway system to get you across the city – make sure you don’t lose your English-Korean map though! 🙂
