No, I was in the M3 and at the Red Bull HQ on the 15th of February.

Valentine's was very interesting, but not pertaining to an Automotive forum.

Whoa! Going a bit far to suggest that offspring might be on the way, isn't it?

Default Flashback!

I was thrilled to go to Red Bull in the first place. While I was entering the coordinates in the Navigation of our M3, i was super excited.

It was a cold and snowy afternoon when we reached. As I was parking the M3 just outside Hangar 7, i saw a huge yellow reflection that loomed out of nowhere.
I turn to look and it's a bright yellow H2. Cool. That car is as high as I am low.

As I stare at the car, the doors open and 4 beautiful women step out. That's right, no guy in the car, 4 lovely women step out laughing and chatting. They look at this open mouthed Indian guy in this silver M3 and giggle.

I am staring. Unabashedly staring. I have forgotten that they have totally stolen my thunder. I stare. I somehow feel like I've arrived in some way. It's wonderful. Oh look at their faces and those lovely fur boots...

OUCH!

I receive a sharp rap to my head. I have forgotten that TheOne® is sitting behind watching my face. I quickly apologize and step out, closing the door. Oh wait. This stupid car has no rear door. I've forgotten to let her out. I quickly open the door and pull the seat upfront. Words are not exchanged, but I feel outrage lurking in the background. I half-smile and open the door. I'm quite dead.

I dare not take photos of the entourage, waiting discreetly till they have left before I take pictures of the parked M3 and Hummer.

Default And in closing...

After a wonderful meal I take a look around the non automotive areas.

An interesting wall at the restaurant.


Later nature calls and I am terribly impressed by the restroom for men.
I take pictures. lol.





Now, armed with these pictures I arrive back to our table and somehow convince TheOne® to take my camera and visit the Ladies' room. heh heh heh. Another Team-BHP first.







And now on that tasteful and wholesome note, I say goodbye as does TheOne®.



Thanks for sharing my joy.

I guess I must be loosing touch with my European background. Spotlessly clean toilets is baffling enough, but why a urinal full of flowers?

What is the camera that you use .. you manage to click people so unobtrusively without them realizing it.

Or is this a trade secret ?
