Brown Masoor Dal curry and Wimbledon Championship pics !

P1030259


After living so close to wimbledon for almost 3 years we thought that its a shame if we still dont go and see wimbledon tennis atleast this year.We didnt have any pre booked tickets or anything so despite of hearing from news and from friends about the long queues we still wanted to of tryour luck and guess what? it was the luckiest day in our life.There was no queue and we could just walk in and even got a half priced ticket ! Leander Paes was the only desi playing yesterday so we decided to see his prequater of mixed doubles and got inside the court.The match was quite exciting as Leander was doing so well and he made all Indians proud by winning the match with his Russian partner Vesnina !

Below you can see pics I clicked yesterday.
