Ciudad de perlas

City of Pearls

semi-overcast 20 °C

Hemos llegado al punto donde no quedan muchas ciudades cercanas para visitar durante los fines de semana sin tener que tomar un par de días libre para transportarse. Por esa razón llegamos a Hyderabad, una ciudad conocida por su comercio de perlas, pulseras brillantes y empresas de informática. Durante el sábado lloviznoso, visitamos la torre de Charminar, el bazar de porquerías, el hermoso palacio de Chowmahall y el histórico fuerte de Golconda. Durante el caluroso domingo fuimos al menudo parque Lumbini, adonde cogimos un trasbordador hacia la estatua de Buda que colocaron en un islote artificial en el lago Hussain Sagar. Fue un menudo paseo que acentuó las ganas de volver a casita. Si que nos quedan dos meses y unos viajes emocionante con compañía familiar :-)

We have arrived to the point where there is not many close cities to visit during the weekends without having to take a couple of days off from work for the transportation. For that reason we arrived at Hyderabad, a city known for its commerce of pearl and shining bangles as well as IT companies. During the drizzling Saturday, we visited the tower of Charminar, the junk bazaar, the beautiful Chowmahall palace and the historical Golconda fort. During the hot Sunday, we went to the small Lumbini Park, where we took a ferry towards the Buddha statue that is placed on a tiny artificial island in the lake Hussain Sagar. It was a minor journey that accentuated our desire of returning home. We do have two months left and some exciting trips accompanied by family :-)

Zakir - we would visit Khulna if Bangladesh did not require Visa :-(

Dear Morin,
You need visa but it is easy to get. You can get it in Calcutta or in Delhi.

If you need any help in Calcutta, I have a friend there.
