+1 to that. Did they know each other before the Manipal days? Or did they accidently bump into each other in Dollops, Downtown or Sphynx?
The mystery is certainly building up . Or better still he would have visited KMC to get the free dental checkup done by KMCs promising dentists.

GR8! Me too driving tomorrow. But I will go via Shimoga though! So morning If I see 3 cars rushing towards my car, I shall make a way! Plan to reach Hasan in 3 hours? Unless you race this would be tough! Me too coming back on 16th afternoon. Mostley we meet in Shiradi ghats (I am starting from Surathkal)!

The weather in Udupi is hot, no sight of clouds or rain (so says my father). But you never know! That shouldn't dampen you spirit!

Now downtown has moved to Alevoor road and DeeTee has taken it's place. But it is true that MIT students have poor rating compared to KMC students. Many a landlords/hotels wouldn't entertain MITians while they accept KMC students.

It is really hot right now in Udupi/Manipal. I will be escaping to Bangalore tomorrow, where I hear it is raining.

UB and N met in Manipal through some common friends.
It was a free eye checkup and not a dental checkup

Hope the weather stays like this for the remining 3 days.
It will be nice if we spot each other somewhere in the ghats of Shiradi

This whole thread sounds just amazing; any mention of MIT, Manipal and especially in a road trip is music to the ears!

There are so many Manipal folks here on T-BHP. I'm tempted to try arrange a common road trip!

The story sounds like the guy is from MIT; if true, it is a classic example of him living the classic MIT dream (in Russell Peter's words)!!

Many people from my batch tried alliances with almost anyone from across the road in the 1st year. The only criteria was, she should be from the other side of Tiger Circle. MCOAHS was the hot favourite in my batch.

As I said before, MCOAHS ruled my batch!

Couldn't agree more. Turtle Bay beach has a nice setting.

Oh yes! The crowd that has started coming in after '08 could give KMC a run for its money.

Did you know, there was a flash mob in MIT last year. I mean, in MIT!!

The name might have changed but that place is still the 2nd Happiest Place on Earth. (the 1st is Hard Rock Cafe )

Happiness and sorrow was celebrated alike!

Ah, I could go on about Manipal.

Hope all of you have a wonderful trip. I'm still wondering why those 4 years went off so quickly.

PS : Hope you plan to visit the lake at end-point, hanging bridge, peacock point etc etc..

But of course!!Manipal is a small place but being an educational hub it will send many students out of this small place every year!

I was in Manipal till a month ago!

Sure the world is a small place.

@Carfreak, If you find my Abarth near the wedding hall, We'll have a chat.
Let's hope your guess is right

OK, now for the preparations.
My Italian beauty was tanked up and all the trip meters reset.
Excuse me for the mobile pictures.
