Attended Sandeep’s wedding

Filed under: My Life — Suramya @ 10:55 AM

Attended Sandeep’s wedding in Jhalandar on the 20th. Jhalandar is about 400 Kms from Noida and we had decided to drive there. Vinit, Surabhi and Pranav arrived in Delhi on the 18th at ~10:30 pm. As usual I had to go pick them up from the airport, by the time Pranav got out of the airport it was almost 11:30. On the way back we stopped over at Umang’s place and chatted till almost 5 am. Then also we only left because we had to leave for the wedding and Umang had to go to work.

We got home by 6am, had breakfast and crashed for a little while. Originally the plan was that we would leave after a few hours of sleep but by the time we got up it was almost 12:30. So we ended up leaving at 1pm. Then we got stuck in traffic while trying to get out of Delhi on the NH-1. That part took us almost 2 hours. After we got out of that the road was pretty good and the speed limit was a sensible 90 kms/hr. So we were driving at ~90-110 (with peaks of 120). Got to Jhalander at about 8:30 pm (we did take a 45 min break for a late lunch in the middle)

The wedding itself was fun. We first had the sangeet on the 19th night. All of us danced a bit, had dinner and then met everyone from Sandeep’s family. After that we all were tired so we crashed. The wedding day itself was nice and warm. The event was decent. The dance group they had organized was good. The wedding did go on till very late. The phera’s started at 12:30 and don’t know till how long they went on.

The next day we left our room at 6:00 am. The roads were empty so drove pretty fast. (Topped off at 160). Wanted to eat break-fast at macdonalds but all the ones on the road were closed. One for renovation, one opened at 9 am, and the third we have no idea about. Finally ended up having sandwiches for breakfast with Ilachi flavored milk. Plus Uncle Chips. What can I say… breakfast is the most important meal of the day. 🙂

Got home by 1pm. So the total drive took us 7 hrs. This included multiple stops, plus one hour of Delhi traffic. Over all a fun trip. Had been wanting to go on a road trip again for a while. So the wedding was a good excuse.

Well this is all for now. Having some internet issues (The home LAN is flaky for some reason) so more updates will be delayed till I fix that.
