street life in India

having lived in mother india for many years, there are just so so many stories……this one goes like this…..

moonpeak is a favorite hangout with westerners, and, tourists alike, one of the first places in mcleod ganj to serve espresso coffee with good food, good service, great sounds and friendly bubbly vibe, sunny afternoons were always guaranteed to bring out the (apparently wealthy) tourists and residing westerners, where we could sit and enjoy, catch up with old friends and make new friends, anew.

with backgrounds in ancient cultures has taught me
to appreciate the simplicity of being and the common spirit of humanity.
