Accessing internet after a long long time... at least that's how it feels like. We both (me and Shraddha) are so addicted to the net that now even a few day's away from the net feels like long.
Day 4 since we started our south-east asia trip. We left Pune late night on 22nd. On day 2 we took a Mumbai-Kolkata-Bangkok flight and then a bus ride to Pattaya.
Day 4 in India. We are in Mumbai. We are still adjusting to the new timezone. The kids have more trouble with jet lag than us. Weather is horrible.
WOW! This feels really good. I'm here near our departure gate at Portland airport just checking mails etc. on my laptop and I just realized for next two months I don't have to worry about work!
Photos of our Dec 2005 trip have been posted to Photo Gallery.

This was a nice trip. I met two of my friends, one in Chattanooga, TN and one in Melbourne, FL (about 50 miles south-east of Orlando, FL).
We also visited Atlanta, Disney World, Kennedy Space Center. Shraddha has also shot some video which I'm planning to edit and create a movie. I'll add it to the Photo Gallery when I get time.
Throughout the I-75 drive in Georgia, we had rain. And at times it was so heavy we could not see much farther than 100-200 feet. I could barely see the tail lights of the vehicle in front of me. About 25 miles into Florida there was no rain, very little clouds and the roads were dry. We reached the hotel at about 7:30pm.
We started in Edison, NJ and rented a car from Newark airport. Then headed straight towards WDC. It took us 3 hours and 10 minutes to reach Downtown, Washington, DC at 12:30pm. Traffic was light. No trouble at all. Then we had a lunch at a nice Spanish restaurant in downtown. Then we went straight to White House. We used public transport. Washington's Metro system is very nice. There were so many different events going on in the national capital area. Lots of people around. The weather was great. 80+ degrees throughout the day. But not too hot.
