Is this what inspired Sinatra?

Travelling can now be a very affordable hobby, thanks to Google Earth. Going through new places with a bird's eye view is so much fun!

I was looking at Mandalay in Myanmar (Burma) and I saw this:
The city looks so well-planned with roads meeting at perfect right angles and houses arranges in perfect squares... Even the river here turns at a right angle!!!

I don't know about others but for someone who's born & brought up in a city like Mumbai, this is very fascinating.


  1. as we say in chandigarh -
    when lost, in right angles we trust!

  2. Yes I have been to Chandigarh. It's so perfectly planned, I kept wondering why every 500metres stretch felt like the previous one :D
