Back from the west


It is amazing that I could stay away from the blog for almost 15 days. Before I try to put together a travelogue of sorts of my trip that included visiting 5 states, 9 National parks, 1 State park, 2 National monuments with 5 airports, 4 flights, 1 Rental car and 2100 miles on road helping us transit, I thought I would share a picture or two, even though my mind wanders to look for additional statistics that would make this trip sound more complicated that it actually was. Yes..I carried an iPod with 1000 songs and managed to finish 2 Books (pretty good ones and more on that at some other point of time). Also, did several short bursts of hiking with our 5 year old..Overall, it was a very relaxing trip to the real world. Now that I am back to working with computers and to spending 7-8 hours in front of mine, a day, I am sort of amused at how the definition of real world changes in someone’s perspective. For me, this is the real world – the world of web where all of us are sort of virtual, so to speak. But the real world – the world with Mighty mountains, Tall trees, Free Animals, Clean air and water, etc.., seems so far away!

Here is the Old Faithful, spewing hot water out every 92 minutes (that’s the frequency as of now):

Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
