Please CLICK HERE before rsvping.

The Chestnut Hill area is beautiful any time of the year, but especially so in the spring because of abundance of flowers. We'll take a 1.5-2 hour hike mostly on small streets and alleyways past beautiful mansions and gardens.

Afterwards we head to Amans Authentic Indian Food for a great buffet lunch. Cost around $10. Amans is in the back of the Northtowne Shopping Center at 202 and Germantown. From the hike, make a left on Germantown. Go 6 miles. Make a left into Northtowne Shopping Center. Go to the far back.

Caution: You should be able to walk 2 hours without much of a break.

      Hi - I used "MotionX" for iPhone, but may be available for other platforms... "Garmin" which Jin used looks pretty cool too, huh?

    The hike was short but very enjoyable. Lunch at Aman's was worth the ride!!

    Here is our hike route: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/319214903. It missed first 30 minutes, though. If you want to do some of the hikes again, you can send the route to your gps device. The 'Send to Device' button is on the top left side of the page.

    Hiking on Monday, a rare treat, thanks to the Memorial day. We hiked first around Chestnul Hill's mansions, where the top 1% live, I guess. The mansions are beatiful. The lawns and flower beds are meticulously kept. The trees are tall and full of lush green leaves. Living in this neighorhood must feel like living in an arboretum. But Sidney's brisk pace left me no time to form any more facy ideas. The gogerous mansions were quickly behind us. Soon enough, we found ourselves at Amans. The food was fully approved by all of us. The restaurant treated Sidney like a royalty; we got a 20% discount; we even received a carrot dessert that was specially made for us simply because Sidney liked it. We had a great time talking too. Although at one time Sidney claimed he had a frozen throat by eating ice cream too fast, his talk did not seem to be affected at all. I guess he can talk, frozen throat or not.

    Excellent walk through a beautiful area on a perfect day. Amans was superb - new owners have more selections and ice cream and sherbert!

    Well, I did not notice this hike started earlier than usual. So, I did spend 2 miles of fast walking trying to find everyone, but missed most of the hike. Aman's was GREAT though. Those of you who skipped that might want to come next time.
