  • Kerela in a Week: Cochin
    on Oct 25, 2010 in Kerela
    Cochin greeted us with a bang. Bang! Bang! Bang! The rain went, bullets from a water pistol, as our flight landed at the Cochin airport. The downpour continued with as much gusto even an hour later as the taxi made twists and turns in Fort Kochi stre...
  • Kerela in a Week: Munnar
    on Oct 25, 2010 in Kerela
    Munnar, a hill-station, and yes the traditional tourist point was our next stop from Kochi. The 140 km long journey took us about 4.5 hrs including a quick lunch stop and on 2 en-route waterfalls. The drive was smooth as the roads are quite good- spe...

    Sanjay decided to wear The Chef's hat once again this weekend. Tired of our upma/poha routine, he decided he was in the mood to dish up some nutritious and tasty breakfast for us. So me and mom were set to task- the Chef's assistants. I was given a...

  • Weekend in Amritsar @Day 2
    on Mar 19, 2010 in Vacation
    The lights could have been stars. I was standing just at the entrance of the parikrama of the Golden Temple. It was dark at 6.00 am in the morning and the temple glittered in itself and more in the water below. As I walked around the parikrama toward...
  • DC: Out and About
    on Feb 17, 2010 in Washington
    “All the organizations in this book exist….All the rituals, science, artwork and monuments in this book are real.” - Excerpt from the prologue of Dan Brown’s book Lost Symbol. Don’t get me wrong here. I am no fan of the Lost Symbol. Inf...

    on Jan 11, 2010 in McLeodganj Vacation
    Impromptu trek to snow at Triund: The next morning Shambhu told us it had snowed in Triund. Wow! Wish Sanjay had asked for something more! We decided then we just had to trek up to Triund no matter what. We packed a bag with some food, water, torch a...
