Taking off from Ann Arbor…

Here is how things look just outside of Ann Arbor, as our flight took off of Ann Arbor Airport, on the way to Lansing!


Ready to take off… not really!

Neelam on a bright, sunny, cold day… The morning was all cloudy, though! We were awake since 7 am to take this flight. Finally, I think we started at 1 pm!In the background, Vijay is still checking the quality of fuel!

Checking fuel quality

Here is Vijay Srivatsan, checking the quality of fuel in the plane that we were supposed to fly from Ann Arbor to Lansing. Interestingly, the quality check is all manual and visual!


Eating at Diwali function

In the picture: Anti-clockwise – Neelam, Vivek, Niranjan, Lalit (myself) and Sachin, and the photographer, Ashish at the ISA Diwali dinner in 2004

It is interesting that over 4-5 years (including Diwali 2006!), every single dinner (good or bad) we have had at Michigan Union was at this very table!


Now Left, now right!

During the sunset cruise at Pictured Rocks, two consecutive pictures of Neelam – Right, followed by Left!


Finally the Sun set

Last September, Neelam and I went to the Sunset Cruise at the Pictured Rocks near Munising (Upper Peninsula of Michigan). Those 3 hours were among the best moments of my entire life – and some other people also felt the same about their trip!

This is the last picture – just before the sun finally set! I will add more pictures of the trip later!


Berlin Wall


Note the Berlin Wall running right through the middle of the road. The base has still been maintained – throughout Germany!
