We had a mini get together on our recent trip to Adelaide. Though the stay was only for 6 nights we enjoyed it thoroughly . Meeting with Selvi and Satha, Sonali and Annesley and Justin and Nirmala were one of the highlights of the trip.
The day after we landed Selvi and Satha took us to show the city including the Oval and other points of interest including beautiful cathedrals . Two days later they took us wine tasting and had a glorious time visiting wineries, picking strawberries, visiting Mount Lofty having not only wine but also coffees and lunch.They took a lot of trouble to show us around. Thank you Selvi and Satha for your wonderful hospitality.
On the Friday before we left Annesley visited our hotel and took us to his house to enjoy a sumptuous dinner at his place. This was attended by Selvi and Satha, and also Justin and Nimala. Other friends were away on holiday and out of the country. We had a lovely time reminiscing the past. Thank you Annesley and Sonali for the wonderful dinner and the lovely time we had at your place.
In between meeting up with batch mates we did some sight seeing visiting Haigh’s Chocolate Factory, the Botanical gardens a replica of an Opal mine and taking a Popeye boat ride, St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral witnessed Chinese dragon dancing as it was the (Lunar New Year ) and of course souvenir shopping to remind us of our trip.
All good things had to end and we returned home to a freezing England but with fond memories of the wonderful holiday we had in Adelaide thanks to the wonderful hospitality of our wonderful batch mates. Hope you enjoy the photos of our trip.

It was great seeing Satha,/Selvi. Justin/ Nirmala–just like the we met in Adelaide back in 1991 dec. only that Roger and Rosemarie are missing .
