Landing a Plane

At the Astronaut Hall Of Fame, I tried a hand at landing a plane. Well! Not a real one! It was just a video game ;-)

In the very first try, I landed the plane smoothly, with no crash, nothing!!!

I felt so excited as a kid! Couldn't help taking a photo of it... and now... I am bragging about it in my blog! :-)

Miss you!

Wish we could catch up one last time before you both left for India... 
Missed you both... Miss you even more now!

Needless to say, this post is dedicated to Kash and Sravani!

Indian flag?

This was one of the first pictures that we took during our visit to Miami. We were overjoyed to see an "Indian" flag.

Later on we found the same flag on top of the Miami City Hall. 

Upon closer investigation, we realized that the centre of the flag was entirely different. And of course! It was flag of City of Miami and not our Indian flag. But it was nice to see something that reminded us of home! :)

"Pounding Flowers"

This was the title of the book that we came across in the Hobbies section of our library. The only tool required for pursuing this hobby is: a hammer!!!

What is the hobby about? It is to place a flower on a card or fabric, cover it up with a tissue  and hit on it with a hammer. The flower gets crushed and the dye sticks onto the card/fabric, making designs on the card/fabric. How strange!

So, if I understood the book correctly, to get a bouquet onto a card, I need a bouquet of flowers to stamp on! That seems crazy!
