the Capitol Complex
Hands down the most attractive sight in India I have seen. Me and my boyfriend took a weekend trip to Chandigargh and we were both blown away. You certainly don't expect to find such a beautiful, clean, comfortable and smart city in the middle of India.
The entire city was planned by Le Corbusier in the 1950's and sadly it is his only project of such kind to be realized. He planned Chandigargh as an ideal environment for its citizens. The city was decided into 47 Sectors that are supposedly self-sufficient and should be able to cater to most needs of their inhabitants. Sectors are rectangular and measure 800m x 1200m and are similar to each other with the exception of Sectors that are primarily designed as non-residential (for colleges, industry, etc…). This exquisite sample of urban planning attracts about a million tourist per year. Well I will be back...
There's only a few things I like about fall. Boots are definitely on top of that list. And then the feeling when you put your cashmere or wool scarf around your neck for the first time after half a year… Yeah fall is not that bad :). Apart from fashion fall is surely the most exciting season culture-wise. I feel like the best movies come out and let's face it we are more likely to read something meaningful cozying up under the blanket as soon as it gets dark outside than we are under the umbrella by the pool. I personally also feel more drawn towards museums and galleries… So what do you say I give you some tips for what to see and what to enjoy these days?

Je jen par veci, ktere mam na podzimu rada. Kozacky jsou urcite na uplnem vrcholu tohoto seznamu. A taky ten pocit, kdyz se zabalite do kasmirove nebo vlnene saly po tom pul roce… Dobre, podzim neni tak spatny :). Pokud opomeneme modu, podzim je pro me take bezesporu nejzajimavejsim obdobim, co se kultury tyka. Mam pocit, ze se vydavaji ty nejlepsi filmy a co si budeme povidat, taky je vetsi pravdepodobnost, ze se zacteme do neceho smysluplneho, kdyz venku padne tma a my se zavrtame pod deku, nez pod slunecnikem u bazenu. Mne osobne to take vice tahne do muzei a galerii… Takze co kdybych vam priste napsala par tipu kam jit a co zazit?
