Sashi's wedding

May 22nd was Sashi's wedding. Since its on a weekend, we had made a good plan. Totally, some 15 friends wud have attended the marriage in Udumalpet.

We started from Bangalore at 10.30PM on Friday. 5 of us (myself,madhu,jiya,veera and vela)
got down at Avinashi and took a bus to Mettupalayam. Veera's Dad had already arranged a good hotel for all of us to stay in MTP and we were also lucky to get A/C rooms because summer was horrible.

We freshened ourselves and headed to Veera's house in sirumugai (20 mts drive from MTP).
Man, what a breakfast !!! probably my heaviest attempt for a breakfast :) which was supplemented by a good coffee @ his farm. At around 10 AM , we headed in veera's car to Kothagiri. We stopped wherever we liked , took photos , photos , photos , photos etc and it was great fun. Veera's driving was amazing.

Kothagiri was courteous enough to offer some chill air though place was hot. We went to Kodanadu view point and it was cool. Jiya fused us with the clouds with this snap. Trip to a hill station is never complete without this.... well , we had our share too :)
With the energy they got in kingfisher , vela started to pick tea leaves and "anything is possible" Jiya tried his leg against an 800cc vehicle. Fun altogether and when we started to a so-called falls . Though it was not a regular water falls, the scene was beautiful and we took some best pictures here with tea estate background.

Evening tea and we started back to MTP. Had a belated lunch at Arya Bhavan and walked back to a theatre screening 'Chandramukhi' alias "lakalakalakalakalaka...."

Slept late and as usual, alarm was just a formality. Our Qualis driver had to wake us up at 4 AM which was the time we had planned to start for the marriage. Finally, we managed to start at 5 and reach Udumalpet at 7. Other friends were already there and after catching up with all , we went to Thirumoorthy falls. Disappointing one because it was too crowded and too sunny. Heat was on us and regulars like water / tender coconut / water melon helped other than finding a place to swim. We did manage to find a small swimming pool and had cool time.

As i intended, we went to Saibaba colony Annapoorna in Coimbatore to have lunch. Food was as usual good and we had a relaxing time after a hectic travel. We didnt want to miss our great college GCT.
We roamed almost to all the most-visited places in the campus during our college days. CSE , ECE depts and esp the hostel and vasanthi bakery gave us nostalgic feelings. AJN was still the same as seen in this one... :) Great to watch juns maintaining our tradition.

Well, we knew we were ending our trip. Saw of Shik and took our train to come back to Bangalore. It was a hectic one but we just enjoyed it !!!

ps: for more photos , watch my travel blog.

Next in line is a Salem trip for Vasanth's marriage.

Good write-up. It would be better if you have put the photos also on the same page, that way we are saved from opening another tab.

For vasanth's marraige, is there a chance for us to trip to Yercaurd?
