Oyster Weekend



Water is the best coolant - even better than Beer actually.
Nothing beats a full day in the cool zone to beat the summer heat.

So – it was this gang of five who showed up as decided. Asha, Ranit, Rashmi, Ankur and yours truly. The rest wished they were there – since the electricity went out at their homes as soon as we got into the pool.

(L-R) Ranit, Rashmi, Asha & Ankur
Oh – before I forget – the venue was the Oysters water park at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. This may not be the WATER KINGDOM that Mumbaikars are used to – but it’ll do for now. We landed up a full 30 minutes before the place opened up – so enthusiastic we were. We were also the first ones into the park.
Ankur choosing his color & size.

Time for the girls to pick’n’choose too.
R for Rashmi and R for Red.
But what is Asha trying to do….!!!

Apart from the time spent idling n the water – Ankur was ever the Instructional Designer as he deftly guided Asha and Rashmi through the nuance of swimming in 6ft of water. He did try to teach Ranit too – but not quite as effectively!!!

Getting in was easy – getting out was tough. The only motivator here was the Pizza Lunch (at 5 in the evening) that we’d promised ourselves at Pizza Hut. It was a special treat for four in addition to the pasta that Ankur consumed
The hair clip in Ankurs hair was quite the revelation of the day – especially since they aren’t quite that long!!!
Ranit thought this was the promo for the next Bond flick…. I told him Pierce Brosnan has more hair!!!

This is obviously the one picture that we looked forward to. That’s (L-R) Ranit, Rashmi, Ankur, Asha and me.

Why do we have to go home???? Anyways - we have the next week to look forward to.
