Living in a small town has its own advantages which are so many I cant tell you in one day, the proof is that I shunned bigger towns and came to settle here in Bharuch. Its another thing that my heart is in this place. However, there at times are some disadvantages of being in a small town. One thing I loathe the most is that there are so few places to hang out with friends. Unless you are doing it in some place surrounded by nature or in someone’s house, there actually are very few places where you can sit for hours and keep ordering food, drink when you feel like and if not you can still sit about for hours.
This one aspect of bigger cities is what always attracts me, lounges or cafe’s where you can all gather and sit about for hours and no one will bother you and you have loads of things to order for should you wish for. Somehow in our town people make a lot of restaurants but they have somehow still not got around this concept of letting people hang out. Perhaps someday we will also have cool cafe’s to sit about, fill up a crossword for an hour sipping a cup of tea or munching on a medu wada.
I recently went on a road trip and was so lucky to come across several such hangout zones in so many towns, Rishikesh and Udaipur on this trip I must confess had some pretty neat cafe’s that need to be checked out more so. I leave you guys here with a couple of pictures of a cafe in Udaipur, Ozen Cafe it was and I kinda loved the setting it had, near City Palace amidst all the hustle and bustle and yet once when you entered the cafe you were cut out from the world.
Warning, many more such pictures and posts are to follow 😉
Imagine hanging out here with all your best buddies, chatting, laughing inanely, and spending quality time with them.
A painting on a wall inside the cafe that I liked very much!
