A room is incomplete;
without a window, its just four walls of concrete.
A window in the wall,
are our eyes, no matter how small.
To a city that rolls on, or that peaceful serene dawn.
A view that captures the smell, of coffee and bread.
Locals and tourists alike, people and cars that sped.
Be it the beautiful sunrise in an ancient Indian town,
Or a calm sunset, along the desert that settles down.
But a window is a must,
for the view will tell a story.
And a window with a good view always gets the glory!
Okay, i accept, got a bit carried away there with the rhymes. But every time i plan our travels, my hostel/hotel request includes – “a room with ample sunshine” and we have been lucky to get decent views in modest places. We have compromised on facilities, read shared toilets and poor service, if the room has a decent view!
And i guess its not just about the hotels; am thrilled with the views from museums as much as what lies inside the museums. And you can’t blame me, most museums occupy really good locations so there is always a good click between those frames!
A picture speaks thousand words, but am adding a few of my own under each picture. Hope you like what you see!
