Jingle all the way

December holidays. No tickets. Can’t go home. Holidays gonna be super boring, that’s for sure. Disheartened. All of a sudden I remembered my aunt had once asked me to visit her place in Hyderabad. But……………. there had to be a problem. I can’t go alone. Daddy will never allow that. I had got no other choice but to approach my cousin. Sometimes handling cousins can be so difficult. Neither did she give a green signal nor a red signal. Stuck at yellow. As the days of vacation were approaching, I was getting more and more impatient. At last……………….. came the green signal. Then, off to Hyderabad.

When we reached Hyderabad, it was Christmas eve. The day went by sleeping and lazing around. At midnight we went to St. Mary’s Church, Secunderabad. It was an awesome experience there. It was…………… thrilling, especially eating ice-cream at around 1.30 am when I had already caught a cold πŸ˜‰ . I never went out at midnight other than Durga Puja and Diwali days. And I always enjoyed spending time with my super awesome aunt who is no less than a friend to me.

Next Day. Christmas. Sudden plan to Golconda Fort. My first experience to a historic site. And I thoroughly enjoyed it. I never enjoyed like this before. Climbing up and down the broken parts of the fort with cousin, aunt and uncle, and clicking “cranky” photos. For a moment it seemed as if we were rock climbing; not visiting an old fort. In short, the trip was phenomenal. The day came to an end with a movie show.

We next went to a park, Lumbini Park. The main attraction happens to be the Hussain Sagar Lake and a small garden sort of a piece of land with a huge statue of Buddha built on the lake. One has to go by mechanized boat to that garden. The place is beautiful. Even the Birla Temple we visited the next day was worth visiting.

Then came the time for me to leave. I didn’t want to. But…………. can’t help.

One thing I noticed. There are too many palatial buildings in this city ;-). Even the railway station looks palatial from outside. Yeah, its different the inside doesn’t look half as palatial πŸ˜› .

Hmmm……….. So…….. My Christmas was not as boring as i expected.

He he just kidding :-D. My Christmas holiday was AWESOME. I am keen to visit Hyderabad again.
