बाइक टूर Bike tour in Sint Truiden, Belgium

कल बाइक टूर है, जिसमे हमारे शोध समूह के अधिकांश सदस्य जायेंगे। हमारे रिसर्च ग्रुप मे मुझे लेकर ५ भारतीय हैं। मैं, श्रीनिवास डुम्ब्रे, माहेश्वर कुन्डारापू, मोहितोष माइती और किशोर जो नही जा रहा है। मै पहली बार किसी बाइक टूर पे जा रहा हूं, वो भी किराये की लेकर। मानचित्र वगैरह दे दिये गये हैं, और डिनर तक का कार्यक्रम भी।

सिन्त - त्रुदेन का मौसम कैसा रहता है, इसका टूर पर विशेष प्रभाव पड़्ने वाला है। आज यहां दोपहर मे काफ़ी बारिश हुई है।
