Trip to Paradise, Michigan

Just concluded short and sweet weekend in Farmington Hills, Michigan with my niece Divya, who took Sampath (my BIL) and me on a gastronomical tour to culinary paradise cooking Chintala Khandaan delicacies (double decker Dosa, fusion biryanis, and authentic curies that you can only dream of having them at few loved ones specially when you are away from home).

She actually drove us  (in her Mercedes CLS 550) more than 10 hours in the span of 18-hour window to Paradise, Michigan, which hosts Tahquamenon Water Falls (which presents unique display of water colors owing to both vegetable and organic tannin in it’s water content, as I am told from Wiki), along with a quick rendezvous at Mackinaw Island too.

Timing was great; we were able to enjoy fall colors enroute to the Paradise and the falls.  They said, “happiness is in the journey”; in our case we were equally excited with our journey and the destination.   Watch some of the beautiful footage captured via my Lumia 1020 (yes, you heard it right).

Yeah Yeah, Lumia is not really a Phone; it’s really a super slick camera.  I don’t mind it, as I seem to be using my phone as a Camera most of the time.  Yes, my great migration from Nokia brick phone of 1990 to latest Nokia slick phone (and the great search in between for ideal smart phone via Blackberry, N95, iPhone 4, and Galaxy S4) will be told soon along with story of family’s 10-year wait for our first land line phone in early 1980’s.
