Default re: Udupi/Manipal BHPian Meet goes wild!

Ok, the photos have arrived. At Udupi chapter of Team-BHP, we try to keep the meets interesting. It was further helped by the fact that we had two guests who are BHPians by spirit, if not by membership. One of them is Nagraj Kamath, the head of local Maruti workshop, and other is our snake expert Harish Kumar. When the latter attends any meet, it doesn't remain calm for too long.

He is only 50, hence he can hardly stay on ground thanks to his bubbling enthusiasm.

He was constantly sharing exotic knowledge. For example, when we all parked near the beach, some of us looked up at the coconut trees to check on the possibility of a coconut or a frond falling on the car. Harish sternly warned against that. If a bunch of people all stare at the same coconut at the same, the collective power of eyes can make the coconut fall right away. He explained the 'science' behind it. BHPian Slicvic who happens to be an ophthalmologist was both stunned and thrilled to learn this new fact about human eyes.

By this time the madness had spread to me.

First the hand stand...

then I landed on the my ass

we had violent fights

then I got thrown

and was stamped upon.

BHPian manipal now holds the record for the lightest person to stand on my tummy. I usually don't allow people lighter than 85kgs to do this.

After the beach madness Harish had to leave. Then we all calmed down and had a hour long gossip about every topic under the sun while watching the sunset. Did I mention we had ocean on our front and river at our back?

It is been some time and was great to meet everybody. As always, we had a great time as you can see from Samurai's vivid description. Next time, a drive maybe and I guess a combined Udupi/Manipal and Mangalore meet would be even more exciting.

This is a place called Kodi Bengare, but not on Garmin/MMI GPS maps.

This is the only place where I take my family when they visit Manipal.

Very beautiful pristine beach. Samurai had recommended this place to me last year.http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ml#post3400520 (The art of travelling between Bangalore - Mangalore/Udupi).

Couldn't resist posting some snaps taken then...

A bunch of us from Bangalore are visiting this region on May 27/28/29 - Wildwoods resort Toodavilli village. If you plan your local chapter meet around that time, many of us can meet in person

BTW, is the Shiradi ghat back in business?
I am planning to visit Kollur, Udupi on my way back. Hope there are no surprises in store for me.

Your resort is 80kms away and all 3 days are weekdays. So it will be hard to get anybody to travel even halfway.

If you guys have plans to visit Udupi on any day, we can do something.
