“One mark of a great educator is the ability to lead students out to new places where even the educator has never been”

Well, my friends might be thinking what happened after the Canada day…;) ! Well it was US Independence Day and so I get to take off to San Diego.

My friend from Toronto often visits this place and he always told me that’s like a paradise and now I know why he says so …:D

“Everyone has a "best friend" during each stage of life-only a precious few have the same one.”

Boy the place has a class…besides the other attractions!
I am just going to add on pictures here which might give a glance as where all I went!

"You can fall in love at first sight with a place as with a person" ~Alec Waugh

It was a very tiring event everyday, still it was much relaxing. Long drives, music n masti (fun), and company of loved ones …what else you need ;)

“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul”

After all the fun and excitement, coming back to home was like a big awaited feeling.
I guess, am on the spree of exploring US…why not when they have so many places to go ;)

“Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates”

“You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.”

"They turned the country up on its side, and everything loose fell into California."
"Divine Nature gave the fields, human art built the cities." ~Marcus Terentius Varro, De Re Rustica


"Cities force growth, and make men talkative and entertaining, but they make them artificial." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"California can and does furnish the best bad things that are obtainable in America." ~Hinton R. Helper

“There is only one difference between a long life and a good dinner: that, in the dinner, the sweets come last.”

"Nobody can tell about this California climate. One minute its hot and the next minute its cold, so a person never knows what to hock"


"California's a wonderful place to live - if you happen to be an orange."

"Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn. They teach you there's a boundary line to music. But, man, there's no boundary line to art."

"Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"California is a queer place - in a way, it has turned its back on the world, and looks into the void Pacific.... It's sort of crazy-sensible. Just the moment: hardly as far ahead as carpe diem." ~D.H. Lawrence

“Voyage upon life's sea, To yourself be true, And, whatever your lot may be, Paddle your own canoe”

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Dr. Seuss

"There are natures that go to the streams of life in great cities as the hart goes to the water brooks." ~Philip G. Hamerton
"How hard it is to escape from places. However carefully one goes they hold you - you leave little bits of yourself fluttering on the fences - like rags and shreds of your very life." ~Katherine Mansfield

Wow! Just awesome Dawn

Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong...

This time of the year, I really miss India, specially Pune. Growing up in Pune as a Malayalee (Keralite) is one thing but I grew up watching...
