It was nice to be among the TBhpians. Many thanks to all those who were present. I had taken some pics, of the aim & shoot type, and will be in the thread by tonight.
Merry Christmas to you all.

Yeah really! I thought of coming for the meet, but one of my neighbours died last day. So I couldn't come.
Moreover, I was in a 'Christmas Nostalgia' .

Eagerly waiting for more pictures.

The meet was at a locale where the ambiance was quite wonderful but the sad part is that there were no restaurants anywhere near. So the discussions were on, "nilppan", which means standing in malayalam
I was the first to reach that spot and then I spotted Naveen driving in. Jose followed and soon others too.
We discussed everything automobile under that banyan tree and those two hours flew quickly. topics were about recently launched cars like Beat diesel, to be launched Abarth, soon to be held Autoexpo et al.

Fort Kochi is too crowded these days due to the Binnale and the Cochin Carnival.

In between we walked to a bakery nearby for tea and soft drinks.
Vishakh was thrilled with Jose's new camera and clicked some pics.
Hope to have a full fledged meet sometime soon.

We among other points also discussed about the Fiat's launch of Abarth in India. Todays Auto-car news has a scoop on it. Nirmal are you watching? It is powered with the 1.4 T-Jet.

Well of course I would love to Sir! I'll be at The Gold's Gym, Vytilla between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. I have German Language classes between 10 a.m and 4 p.m. I can cut short the language classes by about 2 hours. Since I am new to Ernakulam, I won't be able to drive my Tamil Nadu registered Hyundai Elantra to the meet. I will catch an auto and come to the place where you tell me to come Sir.
