Renting A Car

A lot of new experiences to share with those who have faith !

After living for a week in San Carlos city of Sanfransisco, its been pretty un-exciting except for 2 trips to down town SFO for -
1.The Giants game (Barry Bonds last game) &
2.Flex Camp.

Today we picked up a beautiful Silver Toyota from the rental.

We could not have picked a better day, since the weather was beautiful. What was not glorious though was that the place was all closed for the Sanfransisco Gran Prix within San Jose.

With Parag as the navigator we managed to drive from SanJose to Sunnyvale near the Indian resturant area. We lunched at Lucky da Dhabba and shopped at the Indian shopping joint Cash and Carry (sounds too cliche).

The Car would not start when we tried after lunch. The battery was totally dead. The reason for the drained battery can only be due to the headlights or something which was accidentally turned on.

Finally we met Giri who saved the day and jumped the battery by plugging the jumper cables to his car. This was after asking a couple of people for help outside the shopping mall.

For me it was Gods grace to finally make it back to the hotel with the vehicle instead of calling the mechanic shop.
