Ah!! Now quite a break I took. Had got myself down with a bad bout of flu. But then, now am up and about. The last weak left me completely drained and weak. Flu and work. I had to get out there and chill out. Was wondering how to go about it. That's when a friend calls us up over to his place for lunch on Saturday. Wonderful.... Braving the rain, four audacious lads go over to 5Th laddie's place for some sumptuous lunch... he's quite a decent cook. In fact, am the only whose culinary skills are limited only to the omelet. But then, that's different story altogether. Over there, we were greeted by the smell freshly cooked chicken and pomfret. Sounds good?? Now add to this one of the best port wine that one gets to taste. It was quite old... so made it all the more worth while!! Too bad there was just about 3 litres of it!! Needed more :P
The evening saw us at Pune Central, chilling out to some awesome guitar plays thanks to a guitar contest over there. God!! how I wished I could play like them!! :( Anywyz, it was on our way back, that a friend of mine suggests about a Salsa festival the next day at Lush, a popular hangout spot. Fair enough. What about our partner?? That too was arranged in no time. So, next day duly at 7:00 pm sharp, yours truly along with his friend were present at Lush to greet their partners. Unfortunately the ladies were a "bit late". So, the purpose there was to teach people Salsa. The class was on and we sorta barged in. Before long I realised I was making a fool of myself..... ah!! the shame!! I cut short my losses and retreated to the side lines.
And there I stood for nearly an hour when I realised that the music was changing tempo...... and soon enough it was the regular disc music playing.... so, one had gasolina and temperature mix being played out in full blast. Full marks to the DJ for keeping the crowd on toes!! I got dragged onto the floor. Not being a spoil sport, I joined and basically decided to follow others..... but that was not to be for long, as sanity decided to elope with my senses... and I started out my way.... which took the girls by surprise, for that was unexpected. And then the surprise of the evening happened.... Sam executed salsa steps with his partner...... though that left her visibly pleased..... and believe me I was myself surprised at the ease with which I did it!! I later received a mean punch on my arm.... for earlier claiming that I cannot dance. (Why don't they ever understand that I'm too shy to be dancing just like that!!). Had to call it a day for the girls had a curfew of 11:00 pm. Too bad!!
Had a nice time.... enough to make me look forward to another such session. And frankly I was left all charged and geared for another week at work!!
Guess, not much of a post, but my feet are still moving!! :)
Till then Adios
Enjoy your Salsa!! :)
