Default Quick meet in Alleppey / Alappuzha

Hi folks,

January 16th 2009 must be a historical day here with a small (quick) meet happening in this small town.

Only three of us, but a good start.

All started with an SMS from jkdas giving me about 90 minutes for a 5PM meet at the Alleppey beach. drdeepudev was already party to the meet.

I was the last to arrive at the venue sharp at 5PM.

Me with my Marina, jkdas with his Safari and drdeepudev with his new Linea constituted the meet.

It was on for almost 2 hours with a coffee to start with. Talks centred on cars as well as personal matters. A drive in the Linea also happened with jkdas on the driver's seat. I took the test drive from the rear seat and did enjoy the ride.

Well, none of us really thought about snaps and so there is none for the first meet.

I do hope that more meets materialise henceforth.

That would be very subjective. I did and I hope the others did too!

Where do you stay?

Meeting me is not a problem at all.

Between 1000 and 14000 & 1630 and 2030hrs, I am normally in my shop next to Iron Bridge.

A pleasure! I am a little too biased towards my birthplace.

I am very self conscious about taking snaps in a public place. Nowadays I use my HTC for my photos.

@Anil & @Unni and the yet unknown faces around the Venice of the East:

I am a constant fixture in Alleppey. Rarely do I go out except like on the Republic Day to crash in onto the TVM guys' meet!

My shop is next to the Iron bridge - the old building opposite the northwest corner of the bridge. Normally am there between 1000 hrs and 2030 hrs. Of course leave time after 1400 hrs for lunch.
