City Girl - Am I??

Am I a City Girl? I think I am... I am from this cosmopolitan city in India (Not sure if you have heard about this place) now called Mumbai, earlier it was Bombay.

I was always surrounded by People being very busy trying to get to places, or street vendors selling aromatic, yummy food, inexpensive food and all of them changing as per the weather, for e.g. in summer we would have lemonade, buttermilk, icicles (all Indian flavored) and during winters we would have coal fired corn, samosas , vada pav....

So..... why am i sharing all this, cause i am now away from home and recently in a place that makes me very happy as it is most close to how my hometown is. San Francisco, I get off of the busy BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) and totally not kidding when I say its packed during rush hours....(Reminds me of the Crowded Mumbai Trains) these high rises all office buildings and some apartment building as well.

There are people all around occupied or trying to get some places, long lines outside the coffee shops and the breakfast places, street vendors/food trucks at lunch time, break time walks & coffee breaks around 3 pm. What gets to me or makes me happy time and again that its vibrant, happening and has so much life. Its full of color, fashion and people from different walks of life.

Those Tall Buildings
It has a night life, high end restaurants, gyms, art, historic landmarks, farmers market  as well as these yum hole in the wall places that make you want to never leave this place. As the rush hour comes to an end I have to leave for the day to go home,  a calmness settles over me and I want to get to my quiet nest and recoup for the next day full of hustle bustle.

  1. Beautiful post. I would say there are lot of common things between Mumbai and San Francisco, and Chennai too. The best I love in all these 3 cities, we can have hot breakfast at 4:30 a.m.

    BART is crowded. I know. Commuted in BART for several years. There is a joke about what the acronym for BART stands for. Buses Are Reliable Transportation.

  2. I loved that Chaat seller :) the food looks yummy. not been to San Fransisco or Bay area so cant say much on that .. Although the pics look lovely


    1. Thanks for the Comment, How much ever its crowded and reminds me of Mumbai.... nothing can replace the Chaat wallas and Mombai spirit :-)

  3. I have also felt the energy spike in Mumbai... but the city is too fast. Chennai will do for me :)
