I know I cribbed so much about the vacation but lot of interesting things happened too. It was also a holiday of many 'firsts' and I'm going to generously share my experiences with u.
The kids & I were so tickled when we caught sight of this lil guy. It was the first time we were seeing a real live snail. We reluctantly left to go have breakfast. When we came back it was nowhere to be seen; who ever said snails were slow need to check up on their facts.
. I have already seen it before. Twice actually. But I have never seen it lit up like this. Did you know it’s illuminated only on weekends....and only for an hour. It was beautiful…totally worth waiting for. Mysore Palace
Clicked this from a moving train. The path looks so inviting doesn’t it???? Oh the temptation!!!! If I decided to follow my heart I’m sure I would have felt like the first woman on earth walking down that particular road. Oh all right, I'll cut the crap......I was just looking for an excuse to show off what I think is one of my best photographs.
I had slipped off my flip-flops and was walking barefoot on the lovely green grass when I was introduced to this bird. Her name is Rosie. The guy who introduced her to us said she was a Macaw. She walked up to my footwear and snapped the straps neatly into two with her sharp beak. "Shoo-shoo" I waved my hands trying to stop her, then she turned & started walking towards me with this crazy glint in her eye. I backed off in a hurry.
Oh ya I forgot...
First time I met a bird named Rosie.
First time a bird destroyed my footwear.
First time I heard of a Cockatoo being called a Macaw
My sister clicked this picture of me at the Zoo. First time I find myself in the same frame as a rhino.
If I continue I'd probably be tempted to add I was the first person to conquer North-pole and I have no photographs to prove it. So I'll conclude here and request you NOT to write down the first thought which occurred to you when you finished reading this post. Unless you want to compliment me on my superior insights & complicated thought-process.
