Happy New Year to you! I can’t believe you actually read my blog
2008 was the year of travel for me. Roughly 26 weekends outside Hyderabad city limits!
I want it to be 40+ weekends this year. I don’t think it will be difficult
This map shows the places I travelled to in 2008.
In 2009 most of the public holidays are on Fridays, ideal for travel. This has to be another year of travel. A greater year w.r.t. travel. I will be travelling mostly by trains and other means of public transport. Very very rarely, I will use flights. Travel = trains. The maximum luxury i will indulge in, is occassionaly booking a 3rd AC train ride back to Hyderabad, in case I have had a rugged weekend and want to be fresh for work on Mondays.

Now, I will blog soon, sooner than you think. Tons to blog about…
- observations I’ve made
- some interesting websites
- people (lost & found)
- plans for the future
- plans to save and change the world, etc. etc.
1 thing I can tell you, in this last stint of hibernation from the blog, I have experienced a lot lot more than any previous stint ever. Diverse things, people and places.
As a random thought, after several months I finally changed my default browser on my default machine(T61 laptop) as Chrome from the old friend Firefox. I haven’t migrated completely, I probably never will. More on browsers in my next post.

I live in an independent house, the landlord has generously rent out 2 rooms of his house and the terrace to me. The landlord however has access to my section of the house via a connecting door. I leave the connecting door open so that the maid can enter my section of the house and clean the house in my absence.
As it turns out, the maid locked my entrance door and now I am locked out till the landlord returns.
I left the wifi router on in the morning. So, now I have internet access sitting outside my house! I wish I had a password for the door the way I have one for my router. I find it compelling to blog about this situation. Hell, even my torrents are downloading as I type.
