Canberra

Spending a couple of days here, I learn Canberra is entirely a planned city. That explains unusually large roads, huge vegetation.

This view from Mount Ainsle, shows the city  geometrically laid out by Walter Burley Griffin.

Could spot only cars and fewer people on the road. Life almost comes to standstill at 7 pm in the evening, with many of the shops closing, even in the heart of the city

The Governor Generals Residence

Its interesting Indra, the Governor Generals residence was privately owned and used as hunting lodge and residences. Now it serves the Governor General .

Beautiful captures of Canberra. I thought it was just a sleepy town.
