A LIT evening with Desi Lantern

Honestly, I wanted to open this post by picking off a travel quote from Google by a famous person I have never heard of, but would have had to use #Wannabe alongside, so I let it pass. 🙂
Having just returned from a long and beautiful vacation to Europe, I was facing some terrible post-vacation blues. Desi Lantern however soothed that to a great extent by practically making me travel vicariously around the world.

Last Saturday, Desi Lantern organized a feast(that’s what I would like to call it) themed ‘Wanderlust’ for some of us city bloggers. The event started with a quiz revolving around travel which I sadly missed, thanks to the messed up traffic scenes. It moved on to a salsa and bachata session with an expert, which I have to admit was so much fun. All this was obviously accompanied with some great wine.

Oh yes and at the very entrance, you had to choose a shot with a question which would decide which country is your spot on the table. Mine was Australia. So much nostalgia again!

The whole decor of the Ganges Gallery where this event was hosted was beyond what words can explain. So I will let the images do the talking.

The wanderlust didn’t end at the decor alone but we were treated to some delicious delicacies from around the world.
