Museums of Bangalore: Indian Musical Experience

Image
Watch the video here:  https://youtu.be/xuSdTK4XeoI Overview: I thought Bangalore just had 2-3 museums which are well known until a few years ago, but a little research opened up my thoughts as I discovered several museums within the city. I have decided to visit all the museums in the city and document those.  The first one on the list is the Indian Musical Experience in JP Nagar 7th phase. This beautiful museum is dedicated to the evolution and science behind different forms of music from traditional to contemporary.  As we enter the museum, in the inner courtyard, we can see a sound garden, where we can learn about the sounds created from natural things like wood, stones, and metals. We can try our hand in generating music as well. This area is well enjoyed by both adults and children. We then get inside the museum and the experience starts from the 3rd floor, where we are shown a small animated movie with different types of sound created by nature.

Punta del Este: Vintage town in Uruguay peninsula

Overview: The unspoilt Uruguayan peninsula of Punta del Este is all paradisiacal oceanic beaches, exotic sophistication, beautiful people and an ardent night scene. The Monaco of South America. In the last year there has been the shoots of urbanisation in the form of high rise building obscuring the sun, however. Tourist season varies wildly from totally deserted in the winter to very very crowded in the summer, unusual for a city this size.

Munnar: Photolog of Nature’s beauty

Image
Overview: We planned a trip to Munnar during the summer of 2009. A popular tourist destination needs no introduction, we checked into our resort early Friday morning. Having 3 full days at our disposal, we planned to explore this beautiful hill station as much as possible. Day 1: We went towards Mattupatty direction today. First up we visited the flower show, followed by the Photo point and the Honey bee nest.         Next was the Elephant arrival point where we had a ride on top of an elephant into the woods. At times it was scary when the path was too narrow and the elephant had to traverse through it.         Next we went to the Mattupatty dam and the view was majestic with bluish green waters with hills in the background. The scene was beyond words to describe so letting the pictures do the talking this time.     From there we went to the Kundaly lake where it started raining and added to the beauty of the place. The whole place around us looked green and lovely.     From Kunda
