Chandigarh Rose Garden

Hi everyone!
How are you doing?
I’m doing great and at the moment I’m in India!
India is totally different from what I had thought that it would be like. I had traveled to India via Holland from my country Suriname, so I also saw a little bit of the Netherlands.
The trip was exhausting, cause I hadn’t slept well in the planes and my ears were pretty much hurting 10 minutes before landing. When I got out of the airport, I was like wow, this city looks more modern then Holland, that’s something I hadn’t expected. It took me a few hours before I could hear normally.

I’ve visited different cities in India and they are all different from each other. I’ll start with Chandigarh. Chandigarh is said to be the cleanest city of India and the city plan was designed by the French architect Le Corbusier.

The thing that struck me at first was that there were lots of cyclists; in my country you’ll find more cars than cycles. You’ll also find lots of scooters in Chandigarh.

Chandigarh is the greenest city of India. Flowers grow pretty well compared to my country. Chandigarh is divided in 65 sectors. The sectors are separated by beautiful round parks, which is taken care of daily. I have taken lots of pictures of the parks out here. Below is a picture of a park that divides 4 different sectors.
This is one park, but the pictures are taken from different sides.

One of the flower places I’m in love with is Rose Garden. It’s a big park of 27 acres with lots of different roses in lots of different colors.





At first I had to get used to the food out here; but now I’m starting to like Indian food.
This is a picture taken in one of the bakeries in Chandigarh. I’m definitely going to try some of these very soon; they look yum.

I’ve made lots of friends out here from all over the world; it’s definitely a very great experience.


That was it for today’s post about India. Will be back soon with more about Chandigarh!
