Skywatch Friday- Sunset at Oxford, UK

Sunset at Oxford, UK
I took this picture in the summer of 2008. Being summer of course this was closer to 9.00 pm. Even though I had faced this before a few times in Europe, I always feel surprised when the sun sun doesn’t go down at its usual 7.00 pm in summer like India.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
