The Tweet: On my way to Chandigarh, with my Chinese friend, in a bus. Good bye Amritsar! Stay @ Golden Temple was great experience.#IndiaTour #India 7:58 PM Sep 2nd from Echofon
In Chandigarh, where we came from Amritsar in a bus, Xu Jie was my guide. He had been there the previous week. He took me to the Rose Garden, Rock Garden, a museum (which was closed by the time we reached) and a beautiful lake (where we couldn’t boat though as we were late by half an hour or so.) But it was fun all day long and I found the city of Chandigarh, ‘first planned city’ of India, beautiful and organized. Before venturing out, we had booked our rail tickets to Jodhpur. In fact, I wasn’t sure about getting tickets and was planning to head back to Delhi in the evening. But Xu managed to get one for me. [Tweet: @snkr LOL @ Chandigarh n in railway reservation center.

Some of the flowers, like this one, were beautiful.
Same flower, different colors
A Single Rose for You! Sending you a single rose to show how much I care 🙂
Women at work
Not all varieties of roses could be found in the garden as it asks for more attention from its managers.

Inside the Rock Garden was this place
Their faces say it all
Time for some exercise
Performance Measurement Architecture? LOL!
Completely fitting into it
Coming back from a lake, we took a rickshaw ride to the city center, Chandigarh. The rickshaw puller asked quite a few tough questions to the Chinese passengers- Xu Jie who is looking from above my head and another girl who is peeking from above my shoulder.
He was more interested in talking to the Chinese and knowing about Chinese perspective and views than actually ridign us to the destination. Full of questions and curiosity.

Mr. Xu Jie…it’s for you 🙂 🙂
