rapturous expedition renamed diversity


We called it EXPEDITION its first time, we are now calling it DIVERSITY. 

More appropriate, don't you think?  If you have the option of calling something Diversity, why would you call it anything else?!! 

Five of us: two ran, three walked.  For one, it was his second FrontRunners; for another, it was her first.  Said she'd been living in the area for some time but had no idea about this place!  It's true.  Tucked away at one end of Vasant Vihar most people don't even know it exists.  When you find it, you can't have enough of it.  A hidden treasure that delights you just when you think you've seen everything Delhi has to offer.
