Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

This is my small effort to make you smile for a while...

Ladakhalogue … Day 7 and Day 8

Day 7: 2nd July 2011, Saturday

Good morning India, Today is the last but one day of our trip. We are done with all the sight seeing, but one more wonderful thing is still pending and that is shopping. I am so damn excited, messaged all my friends about this and have made them jealous. Hold on guys, see the things I have shopped you will be more jealous…
Ladakh is very famous for Silk, Antiques and stones. You name an accessory and you will get it here. God, I am all excited to shop for myself and my friends. Hubs has shifted the shopping time to post lunch as it will be less sunny so I will rest well and then get ready. Before that let me list things I want to buy

Shopping listed in my Diary:

Stone(Amethyst, turquoise, ruby, Pearl, etc etc etc) Bracelets
Stone Earrings
Silk Purses
Chains Lot more…

Hey ya, its shopping time now see the things :D

I shopped handful and I took just 4hrs 35min (time keeping done by hubs) oh I cant stop seeing it again and again, Hubs is worried about packing things and taking it safely back to Bangalore.

We are back in hotel and its dinner time now, Oh there is one thing in our itinerary. Something as Dinner with Chang!!!! I don’t know who is that ok will come back from dinner and sleep early, as we have to be ready to the flight to Delhi tomorrow morning.

End of Day 7: Good night, Hey btw Chang is the local drink!!! Phew, I was hoping to meet some handsome hunk!!! Anyways love my life today more than any other day. ;)
