Karachi is a hardcore foodie city, everyone in town is a little bit of a food snob. Like we know the one thing going for us is our happening food scene, we don’t shy away from boasting about it either once we meet someone from out of town. Even as a local it’s pretty hard to keep up with the sheer volume and variety of food on offer. Competition is pretty stiff, new restaurants open up and close overnight. One bad review and your restaurant could easily go bust.
Most Karachiwallas are pretty active on the many social media food groups online, at times people can get pretty nauseatingly petty and pretentious with their food reviews, but I guess that’s what makes the market so cut throat and competitive. On the other hand it isn’t one bit odd to see a few nutters go all out keyboard berserk over mind numbing stuff also, like a bag of crisps or cat food. Go figure. Nonetheless there’s never a dull moment in Karachi’s bustling foodie arena.
Revenons à nos buildings, entre acier et béton 🏗
Une fois de plus, j’ai essayé de vous trouver des super infos sur les gratte-ciel qui ne vous serviront probablement jamais 👨🏻🏫
D’après la « définition » moderne, un gratte-ciel est un immeuble composé d’une juxtaposition d’étages, mesurant au minimum 100 mètres de haut 🏢
En gros, la Tour Eiffel n’est pas considéré comme un gratte-ciel ☁️
Le titre de premier gratte-ciel de l’histoire est disputé entre le New York Tribune Building et le Home Insurance Building de Chicago, tous deux construits à la fin du XIXème siècle 🤷🏻♂️
Voilà voilà, pour ce qui est du plus haut du monde, vous le savez probablement, il s’agit du Burj Khalifa de Dubaï, culminant à 828 mètres de haut 🚀
Bon samedi à toutes et tous 🙋🏻♂️

Lying on the rugged mountain top under thousands of stars is one of the most amazing experience I had. I have spent hours stargazing and counted many shooting stars with a applaud every time I see. It makes you awestruck to see and realize that we and our planet is just like a insignificant speck in this universe among thousand of different planets.
This star timelapse took about 4 hours of continuous shooting and while guarding my camera from strong winds at Gorakh Hills.
Truly Extraordinary. This time lapse cannot sum up the experience.

One thing we love about traveling in general is seeing how different animals behave within their surroundings, cats in particular. We have taken so many photos with cats and dogs who seems to be part of the locals and they fit in quite nicely too.
As I’ve always been fascinated by Buddhist monks, I would spend up to whole days in monasteries, witnessing the monks daily life, or listening to them singing.
While in Angkor, I managed to spend some time with two young monks, who were happy to follow me for a bit while I was walking around.
