Delhi-Agra Trip

I was in Delhi recently. I was attending LinuxAsia, "Asia'a Premier Open Source Conference & Expo".

The conference was from 8th to 10th. HP (my employer) was the platinum sponsor and that meant that we had to show some demos at the commercial expo. Frankly, I prefer FOSS.IN anyday (Include the disclaimer here : the views expressed here are my own and ...). Enough said 😉

Anyway, thanks to LinuxAsia, I got to visit Delhi. The conference was held in the India Habitat Center, on Lodhi Road. The school where I finished my primary education, Delhi Kannada School, is also on the same road. I have many fond memories of Delhi and they came flooding back as I travelled on the various roads. Unfortunately, I couldn't revisit much of Delhi. I spent almost a day and a half on a visit to Agra, with a colleague. Few pics below:

Now, I am back at Bangalore. Good times have to have an end, don't you think ?

Trek : Hosagadde-Dabbe Falls-Kanoor Fort-Gerusoppa

Eight of us (Me, Harsha, Priya, Vathsa, Krishnaprasad, Manohar, Vishnu and Dileep) had gone on a trek last weekend. The republic day weekend was thus well utilised.

This was a three day trek from Jan 27 to Jan 29. The trek route was Hosagadde-Dabbe Falls-Shaale Mane-Kanoor Fort-Doctor Mane-Gerusoppa. These places are in the vicinity of the Jog Falls. The trek was about 35 kilometers long.

Some of my favourite pictures can be seen below. Clicking on them will enlarge them in the current window itself. Click anywhere to return back! This cool functionality provided by Lightbox JS.

Other than these, I've uploaded a select set of 31 pictures here. Have a look!
