Happy Independence Day!

Today, India is celebrating its 63rd Independence day. Lets remember for a minute the brave souls who fought and sacrificed their lives for this nation.

Now its our duty to reach out for the skies!

Fortunately, there is also saffron, white, green and blue in this picture!

I will be away for a week – I am going to San Francisco. I have been there once but the majestic Golden Gate bridge called me over again ;) So I won’t be around Flickr :|

Info

Solvang is a city in Santa Barbara County, California, United States. The city of Solvang is one of the communities that make up the Santa Ynez Valley. The population was 5,332 at the 2000 census.

Solvang was founded in 1911 on 9,000 acres (36 km²) of formerly Spanish land by a group of Danish educators, who traveled west to escape midwestern winters. The city is home to some bakeries, restaurants, and merchants offering a taste of Denmark in California. The architecture of many of the buildings follows traditional Danish style. There is a copy of the famous Little Mermaid statue from Copenhagen, as well as one featuring the bust of famed Danish fable writer Hans Christian Andersen. A replica of the Copenhagen observatory Rundetårn in the scale 1:3 was finished in 1991 and can be seen in the city centre.
