I am quite averse to getting clicked. There have been a few exceptions to this rule but quite few and far between. However, when I visited the 3D Art Gallery at the Venezia Cha Am near Hua Hin I behaved in such an uncharacteristic way! You see it was so much fun.
There are more than 60 paintings that you can fool around with! I have to admit, I started reluctantly. Initially I was not sure what was the point. But after a few minutes I completely lost it. I play acted, sounds more apt in Hindi, I did so much Nautanki!
The Mummy and I, both were left wondering what was the point. When I could not think of a pose to strike, the fellow travelers would suggest something! It was surprising how much I got caught in the fun, I mean me, a professor by my day job and all that!
So within the short span of one hour, I went through eak aag dariya (a filed of fire) as well! The trouble was I just could not quit laughing. You should have seen the entire media and travel agent group going berserk in this gallery!
The biggest partners in crime were fellow blogegrs (right to left) Anil Yadav, Rohan Singh, Gaurav Bhan Bhatnagar and Tarun Gaur. We took so many pictures of each-other that it is difficult to remember who clicked what! This one was clicked by our guide Joey who was very fond of saying chalo chalo (let us go) when he wanted us to move and his pleas in English were falling on deaf ears!
This was my third trip to Thailand with the Tourism Authority of Thailand, my second with TAT New Delhi. A big thank you to them for being my genie to Thailand, a place I have enjoyed like no other!
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
