This summer would be one exciting time I am looking forward to. Coupled with my parents first ever trip outside India, there are some adventures planned as well – 4 miles mud race, bungee jumping, hiking and camping, and if time permits snorkeling. And yes of course world’s largest roller coaster is on the cards as well.
A few must do to activities in summers are not forgotten– beaches, biking, barbecue, tennis and the list goes on.
Tomorrow we plan to do a picnic session with close friends in Central Park in New York. We have also rented a bike for a couple of hours to burn some calories and enjoy the scenic Central Park.
Preliminary preparations are on for parents visit. 8 weekends and all weekends are already planned. Just realizing that 8 weekends are not enough as well. One weekend dedicated to the mecca of Indians visiting US – Niagara Falls. Another one to show them the symbol of freedom what United States of America stands for – Statue of Liberty. Next what we call as the face of US – White House and Capitol Hill. And a few things here and there. It would be exciting to show them the culture and lifestyle here.
That’s pretty much! 🙂

I have been thinking to write this post since the time I first visited NYC. I have been mesmerized by the sheer aura of this city…the hustle-bustle..the maddening crowd walking their way pushing each other…the traffic snarls..the mammoth building..the spirit of the people.
Whether it is day or night..this city never stops. In its truest sense, NYC is the city that never sleeps. I was dashed when I saw the Manhattan..The Statue of Liberty..The Brooklyn Bridge…The Times Square…The Ground Zero..The Empire State Building. All these things I read about in books and only saw in movies.
I wanted to capture every places I saw..every emotions oozed out of people..the charisma of the vicinity. But it was just not possible to capture everything in pictures.
I am putting some random pictures which I just clicked out of whim. I know these pictures are not that great…but this is all I have!
