A short break from the routine…


School closed for the year, and has begun again, bringing with it the prospect of changes and something new. The vacation in between was too short to be considered a real vacation, for it was just a week long. But we made the most of it, packing into the short week a few days of relaxation in a pleasant place far away from the madding crowd, as well as a couple of days as part of the crowd, visiting relatives galore and eating like there was no tomorrow!

You can look forward to reams of writing about my vacation, as well as lots of photos, for I used up 2GB of memory clicking away to glory! However, the beginning of the new term has ensured that I have little time to write, so it will take some time to put down all that I want to.

Let me begin by telling all of you where I went for the vacation. Our first stop was Delhi, where I have hordes of relatives, whom I haven’t visited for over 10 years! After spending half a day rushing from one house to another, we managed to reach Old Delhi station in time to catch the Ranikhet express to Kathgodam. From there, we hired a car for the three and a half hour journey to Binsar, or rather more accurately, the Club Mahindra Valley Resort at Binsar, where we spent 5 days in bliss, enjoying the serenity and visiting just a couple of places. Our return journey brought us back to Delhi, this time to the house of a cousin, where we spent the day chatting and catching up, while Samhith got to know his cousins, who look and behave incredibly like him! We also caught up with another cousin who joined us there, and it was a riot with 5 kids between the ages of 6 and 8 let loose, having the time of their lives! Dropping all other plans, we let the kids enjoy themselves, and rushed directly to the station to catch our train back, bringing a memorable vacation to a close.

While I collate the thoughts I jotted down during my trip into a semblance of order, take a look at the slideshow of my photographs….. or for a more leisurely stroll, go to the album
