That's what I wanted to mean. Instead of asking "Do you still use the film SLR, I asked manual slr erroneously". My Film SLR MZ-50 is still in amazing condition and works like a charm. I plan to bring that over on my next trip back home.

I had the same dilemma 5 years back. I finally decided to go for Pentax ist DL. I've been very happy with the decision. Finally, a decent collection of lenses is what you need to go with an ok camera body!

Raja sir, great travelogue! Good for you that you visited Ooty in late June. It is a lovely place, meant to be enjoyed in peace. I went there in mid-May and it was so crowded. Reminded me of Bangalore's city market. Only things that kept me excited were my little son and the drive in my Cedia. (It was fun handling the 36 hairpin bends from Mudumalai to Ooty with rain pouring down )

Must have been so special to meet your best friend especially after such a long Must have been so special to meet your best friend especially after such a long gap. I was reminded of my best friend who now lives in UK. Can't imagine not being able to speak to each other at least a few times a year.

Yes, I specifically planned the vacation just after all schools open to avoid crowd and everywhere we went, everything seemed to be 'specially' for us.
Extra welcome for the rare guests..

Great trip, Raja Ji. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your log. I am waiting to see the pics you took with your SLR.

I must say that you got a good average from your Cedia, quite similar to our Chevy.

So, when is your next trip happening?
