Yoga in Alibaug

For the Easter weekend I went with Sharon to a yoga and meditation retreat at Mango Beach in Alibaug.  It was remarkably easy to get there - a speedboat from the Gateway of India.  The weekend was a good combination of lounging by the pool in the heat of the day, early morning and late afternoon yoga and meditation, and a bit of theory about the yoga sutras later in the morning.

Trying out my new camera

I got a new camera for my birthday - and so I've been walking around Bandra taking photos and trying it out.  These photos are from Jogger's Park.

One night in Bangkok (or maybe 3)

I went to Bangkok right at the end of March for the NESA Conference, where I was a presenter.  It was an odd experience going back having been away for 8 years.  Amazingly, when I went to NIST I knew so many people - that was really great being able to see everyone again.

On the first evening I took one of my colleagues out to the Dome - the highest outdoor restaurant in the world - followed by a meal right opposite Wat Arun.  Other evenings I went to a NESA reception by the river, a lovely meal and a visit to the night market.  I also found time to squeeze in 2 foot massages.  Oh, and of course I presented at the conference.
