T is for Time

Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is referred to solar time at royal observatory in Greenwich, London. I’ve been to this place in the year 2008 on my B’day. This pic is little blurred, as I cropped it and made some changes for a better view of this clock. 


Greenwich clock with  standard measurements down there.

There is a meridian line where you can at a time be on 2 different poles of earth (North Pole and South Pole).

If you are in UK and never visited this place, then please go and visit it. If you are visiting UK then don't miss this place. It's fun to be here, esp for kids. This post is posted at Alphabe- Thursday.

Cheers,

S is for Sky Scraper


When ever I hear this word one thing comes in to my mind immediately is, the New York City. Apart from being my favorite place, this place has also added some beautiful memories in to my diary. I can never forget the Friday evenings I spent in that city. Sometimes with my friends (most of the time by myself) we used to walk down the street just like that. Have fun talking on the roads, looking at the people from different nations, eating food what not? 

One Penn Plaza
 I used to work at Manhattan (heart of the city) in One Penn plaza. It is 54 storied building,  shares the same street with Empire state building.  It was fun working in a desi company, but surrounded mostly by Mexicans. They are very friendly people though, very sweet and believe me most of the girls are damn gorgeous.


 Macys was adjacent to my work place, I used to get in that tall 9 storied building and spend some hours walking around the displays. I have bought many gifts for my parents and my husband (then my boy friend) from this mall. As my office was in the 15th floor, this building was quiet visible from my desk place. So I was always updated with the events taking place there.

    
It is fun being surrounded by so many people. I know many say it’s crowded, busy centre, jam-packed with people etc etc. But I can assure you it is much fun than walking in desert feeling deserted by the whole world.


I met many nice people in this city who have become my friends for lifetime. I also learnt the value of time and money after staying here. The city teaches you many lessons which are surely helpful in your life.      


 One place I couldn't visit in New York is Statue of Liberty. Yeah I know that is not the place to be missed. Next time when I go there I will surely visit it. 


Fav places in NY are 42nd street, Cold stone Ice cream Parlor, Time square, Wall street, Macys, Cafe 34 (pizza corner), Subway located at 52nd street, WTC, Brooklyn bridge.
