June 5, 2009

June 5th found Rahil in Northampton, Massachusetts, where his parents were visiting old friends. It was a busy day: first there was a trip to see dinosaur tracks along the Connecticut River ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y10bFJO1guM), then there was some horsing around in Lulu Auntie and Lalith Uncle's back yard, then it was over to pay respects at the grave of mom's friend Agha Shahid Ali, followed by a trip to Look Park, which included a close examination -- Rahil's first -- of a river, a ride on a paddleboat (another first), a ride on the Look Park train, and a trip through its Deer Park, complete with peacocks and bald eagles. (There were no deer to be seen.) Finally, Rahil sat in Dad's lap and drove the rental around the parking lot a few times ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQ6Q8JuTx34).
