APAD #CBS: The well..wet underground

Punny rock-band references aside, the ‘wet underground’ in this case refers to the now-popular, yet, barely-accessible and rarely-visited tunnels! <Trivia: Columbia university buildings are connected by a series of underground tunnels, which, over the years have been used as nuclear shelters, transport passages for scientists working on the Manhattan project, for heating systems and pipes, transporting … Continue reading

APAD #DC: a walk through the capital..

…this post has been so named, since my primary mode of transportation there too, were my two feet – partly because I discovered the DC circulator pretty late, but mostly because I still believe the best way to explore or experience a new place is to walk on its streets (holds true especially for Washington … Continue reading

10 things: the Himalayas

I recently picked up “A Walk in the Woods” by Bill Bryson (Hilarious book btw!) – about the author’s hike on the Appalachian Trail in America; and just 10 odd pages down I got the feeling I wanted to go to the Himalayas again! The whole trek right from planning the itinerary and shopping for … Continue reading
