sunday's delight

I went over to my childhood friend mohan's place. He was still asleep at 10:30AM. I had to wake him up. Then we headed out in search of digital cameras. It was a disappointing experience since the shops were closed and those open did not have many models.
In the afternoon, we went to the movie " The pirates of the carribean" . It was really good. A good movie after a long time. Jonny depp was wonderful as a honest pirate. The setting , story really scores.
