In the attached photo you will see Anuj Dahwan on the left and Marso on the right.

This photo was taken by my wife at the Mumbai Airport, on Feb, 18th a little before midnight, a few hours before we took a plane back to France and then to Israel.

Recently, my holiday plans include a meeting with my traveling daughter.
Last year we met in the Philippines, this year it was India.
I also chose to fly through Paris so I could meet my parents.

So, after 3 days in Paris, we arrived in Delhi. On the next day our daughter arrived from Bangkok, and we successfully met.

Our journey took us straight to Jaisalmer, then around some places in Rajasthan.
From Udaipur we flew to Mumbai, then rode to Aurangabad and back to Mumbai.

Being on a holiday trip with my family, I decided to contact only one member of the Forum.
I was delighted when Anuj responded positively.

Unfortunately, we were in the Colaba area, Anuj is not far from the Airport (almost 2 hours by taxi in Mumbai traffic, one way), so we were left with the only option of an Airport meeting.

Anuj, I really enjoyed meeting you, too bad it was for such a short time.
We will keep in touch and you can be sure next time it will be even better!

Agree.

Anyone coming to the Silicon Valley area? I suppose it is not much of a tourist destination, though fairly close to San Francisco.

icon_smile.gif - it was kind of you choosing me; ask this young Lad, how happy He was! Even the picture shows that icon_biggrin.gif

Yeah, that was short and I was more afraid because I was not sure if we'll get some place (restra etc.) even to sit there as there was lots of construction-work going when I happened to be there lately.

Yep - meeting up again is a sure thing... icon_smile.gif

I just realized - we both were wearing green-color T-shirts and Blue-jeans and both were telling each other that with this “dress-code”, probably, you can recognize "me" – LOL.

Heh he...I don't know Robert.

May be because I'm an Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering Graduate and once upon a time, they wanted me to join Aeronautical Engineering while I landed up in IT - so airports still keep on calling me...icon_biggrin.gif

Sorry to bring this subject up, but there has been a few remarks about my hair...

My skull is so beautifully shaped that it would be a shame to hide it under some hair.
I think some people are just jealous! icon_wink.gif

And yes, we had a wonderful time in India. There will definitely be a next time !

Indeed. But it is not exactly "our" dome...
Here is a link that explains why that particular spot is so important for Muslims and Jews.

And if anybody ever come to Israel, I'll be glad to arrange a meeting.
