Dotty dears holidays started from yesterday. I had got an SMS from club Mahindra 3 weeks back that there are few rooms available at Coorg, Thekkadi and Ooty. By the time I could get my act together, mind made up and wify dear agree, the window of oppertunity went away. So when 6 days later I got a mail saying there is another window opening, I dailed w dear without me getting invovled further. And she booked us at the Green Derby resort at Ooty for the coming Sunday and Monday.

This Club M thingy is more tension than relaxation, for booking. You need to book 3 months in advance and some thing inevitable happens and you cancel. Then you worry about not able to use those 7 days. Then Rush when unexpected mails tell you that there is chance.

Now that we had got Sunday and Monday covered, plan to go to Mysore on the Saturday. Stay at the Infosys guest house and go early to the Udhagamandalam.
