Amitabh's The Unforgettable

The last weekend of July was usually full of events. Saturday (26th July) morning Nitol, I, Shusmita, Ahyan & my parents went to San Francisco Zoo with Shahriar, Sochi, Safwan & Shahriar's parents. From there, we went to Darbar restaurant in San Francisco for lunch. Then we went to the world's crookedest street (zizag in Lombard street) in San Francisco. It was a quite a risky route while climbing over to the zigzag entry point rather than the zigzag road itself. As Safwan was crying Shahriar had to leave for home at that time without going to the crookedest street. From there we went to Golden Gate Bridge vista point. From here the view of the bridge, San Francisco and Alcatraz Island was quite clear.

The very next morning, we (the same group as the last day) went to Santa Cruz to take the one hour Santa Cruz Steam Train journey to see the giant Oak, Sequoia and other trees. From there we drive to Hayward Pakwan for the famous Sunday only buffet lunch where Ezaz, Shaki & Mahi also joined us. Everyone liked the various dishes.

We went back to have a quick rest before Amitabh's The Unforgettable show in the evening. Ahyan threw up several times when we tried to feed him and hence we started a little late for the show. Nitol, Shahriar & his group all we reached Oracle Oakland Arena about 7: 30 PM. But the show started way after 8 PM instead of the scheduled 7 PM, so we didn't miss anything. It was a privilege to see Amitabh performing for us. Of course Abhishek was good, Ritesh performed well, Aishwarya and Madhuri were amazing and Prity Zinta sweet while Vishal & Shekhar were rocking. It's a lifetime opportunity to see them all with my parents. A really good memory to be cherished in future.
