On 13th June at 9O' clock 2 of my roomies, me and 11 people I had never met went on a moonlight trek to Skandgiri, a small mountain near Bangalore. We went on bikes, reached Skandgiri at about 2 in the night(as we took a 3 hour dinner break!!!). And then we started climbing the mountain.

Now, the fact is, that although I look pretty fit, I have no stamina, so the uphill climb took all the wind out of my sails! I was happily trekking for about the first hour and a half. After that, I started gasping for breath. Every five minutes, I would tell everyone that I needed a break and that they should go on without me. Of course everyone was very sweet and no one listened. They patiently waited for me to catch my breath and continue.

And I am glad that they talked into climbing all they way, as the view was totally worth it. Also I made 7 new friends that day. It doesn't get better than that! Of course its another story that I had to call in sick for work the next day.
