Casa Loma, Toronto

Casa-Loma

I recently visited Toronto and was awed by the majesty of Casa Loma. Beautiful exterior, exquisite interior and breathtaking views from pretty much all the rooms are a must-see. If you get a chance to visit it, don’t miss the audio tour and the movie on Sir Henry Pellatt. It will inspire you!

Majestic Niagara Falls!

Niagara

I recently visited Niagara Falls. Whether you visit from the Canadian side or the American side, you can’t deny the mystique of these falls.

Although it was my third time seeing the falls, it seems all the more majestic. One is certainly left in awe at its grandness.

“Little India” across the globe!

Jackson-HeightsOver the years, I have visited “Little India” communities across various U.S. cities and other countries and just reflecting upon it made me realize that these neighborhoods are not so sought after as they used to be. Ever since Indian population in various cities have expanded, now the restaurant and fashion boutiques or grocery stores are spread out throughout the cities . In earlier days, if you wanted a spicy bite, all you had was the “Little India” communities. Even then, I make it a point to visit the “Little India” neighborhoods, as I travel to get a historic glimpse.

Dosa-delightRecently I visited Jackson Heights (Little India of New York) and I have to say I wasn’t quite impressed. It is probably the largest of all “Little India” communities that I have seen but it seemed old and congested. We ate in Dosa Delight and the food was really good and so was the service. But if you can find Indian restaurants everywhere, would you make the effort to go to Jackson Heights? may be not.

Anyhow, of all the “Little India” neighborhoods I have visited, the ones I liked the most were Los Angeles Artesia district, South Hall in London and Mahatma Gandhi district in Houston. You may want to check these outs on your travel!
