When I was living in UK ( 1995), I met a mallu doctor at a dinner party. She had just come back from a trip to US and was talking about Grand Canyon. I had no idea what Grand Canyon was, so I asked ” What is Grand Canyon?” There was a pin drop silence in the room. Apparently I was the only 24 year old on planet earth who has never heard of Grand Canyon.
And Grand Canyon became a part of my must do list. Kathleen Noonan wrote recently “In life, we work to deadlines, most of us. Yet, no matter how silver-tongued we are, there is one deadline we can’t talk ourselves out of. On the day we die, what is not ticked off the must -do list will remain not ticked off, The deadline will arrive.
Kids and I are leaving next week for a 6 weeks vacation to US. Funds are limited and I have no idea how much this trip is going to cost me. Apart from visiting the ivy league colleges on west coast and east, a trip to Disneyland and then the grand canyon, I have no idea where I am going. I have hired a car.. After grand Canyon, I might head to Mexico and then fly to NY and from there to .Boston..New Orleans..ah the list is endless and madness too for wanting to visit east coast during winter 🙂
