Falling in love with somewhere isn’t usual for me but this place is entrancing, seductive, buzzing, crowded, vibrant and fun.

I’ve been here since Thursday and can see/sense/smell the excitement. Everyone is aspirational. The guy living in polysheet and cardboard shack on side of the road aims to get a house, the auto-wallah wants a taxi, the taxi-driver wants a limo and so on.

Everyone I have come into contact with is friendly, bright and enthusiastic. What a place! From the madness of KR market to the rather sedate atmosphere of my hotel, it’s truly exceptional.
