a vacation... just WOW

After nearly 5 yrs, I have been into this long vacation. I remember, in 2004 after my semester end, I had a vacation of arounf 45 days. Now, I had a vacation of around 3 weeks. This vacation was a such a wonderful one. Everything was new. New experiences, new places. And above all, new member in my family... my niece. My 1st overseas trip... And, just one more day; I am back to my old life... life with bits and bytes. This trip will be remembered, all along my life...

things I will miss...

On my maiden trip to Bay Area in US, I realised some things which I will never get back home. During my short stay here, here is a list of 10 things, which I feel, I will miss it in my home land.

  1. Cleanliness
  2. Cars... Cars... and Cars...
  3. Excellent Roads & Disciplined Traffic
  4. The weather
  5. Yummy Pork
  6. Good Manners (of people in malls, stores etc.)
  7. Super Fast Internet (No worry for buffering of online movies)
  8. Uninterrupted Water
  9. Uninterrupted Electricity
  10. Silence...

I believe, some of these things which are very basic for human life. Forget the extravagant stuffs this country has to offer. Everything seems to be so civilised here. Is it the money factor ? Does being rich makes you more civilized ? I don't know. But, years and years to go, before these are realised in my country... or may be never !!!

SFO Downtown

to get a feel of real America, I visited San Francisco (SFO). Yess, thats what I saw in TV and movies. Place full skyscrappers, cars, nice resturents and all that is expected and imagined in America. A drive through Highway - 1, the scenic SFO Golden Gate, Pier 39 followed by a delicious dinner of sea food at Fishermans' Wharf. The skyscarappers at SFO downtown were like WOW. Highway -1 by the Pacific is too good a drive. Truly a memorable visit...
