We parked our cars and went to the ticket window. Looking at the price of the ticket Geet and Audi looks at each other. 50$ that is insane they said to each other. Well after having few talks Diptesh inquired at the ticket window. All of them ended up paying $40 each for the entry for whole day.  We went through the security check and as soon as we entered, all of us saw the sign NASA.  Audi and Mrugesh being overloaded with the water went to the wash room.  Geet and Diptesh went and took few pics around the NASA sign.  After taking the pics Geet and Diptesh went to the Rocket garden to take few pics…after visiting rocket garden we took few pics at the astronaut movie theatre….All of us were then headed towards the bus tours that takes the visitors at 3 different.  As we headed towards the bus tours we waited in line for the tour.  After boarding the bus…Audi happen to notice that Geet has grown his beard….out of curiosity he told Geet I have never see your beard I thought that u can never grow one…both Diptesh and Geet laughs at Audis comment

                All four of us went on the bus and sat all the at end of the bus,  after sitting for few minutes we started taking pictures.  Upon taking the picture and reviewing them, AUDI noticed a comical pose in one of GEET's pictures.  "The snap shot of GEET had the most comical double chin displayed in it, since he was looking down", AUDI and DIPTESH laughed hysterically on top of there lungs for about 10 minutes.  The Indian father, who was sitting in front of AUDI was getting annoyed, because 1 or 2 year old daughter was listening to the BC words that were coming out of our mouth as we laughed at GEET.  After short time the bus started and we were on our way to tour the Kennedy Space Center, as the tour continued the 1st sight was the Apollo 10 located on the right side of the bus.  When the bus turned right the huge building located on the left was control room where all the people worked from also the place where the crawler was parked (NASA also had building dedicated to all the contractors that worked for them,; located in a separate area).  The first stop for the bus was the observation tower, 5 story tall structure from which both shuttle lunching pads, nitrogen tank, hydrogen tank and other things can be seen.  Once we all got off the bus AUDI was kind of hungry, so he purchased a bowl of dip-n-dots ice crème, both MRUGESH and DIPTESH tasted it, but was worried that his illness will progress so he restrained himself from consuming the ice crème.  Than all four went a level higher and took some more picture, than climbed onto the next level and took more pictures.  Located on the center of the observation structure was a single shuttle engine (must be at least 10 feet high and about 25 feet in diameter).  Located on the next level were two couples (yarr who lokh puppy pay puppy kare ja rahaye thay), so we left them alone and made our way to the highest floor.  Upon entering that area we saw circular stage were people stood to see the shuttle launch.  So we left that area and stood in line for bus to get onto next area.

                After waiting for 10-15 minutes the bus came and we were moving onto the next area.  The next area was the Apollo museum, after riding the bus for 5 minutes and exiting the bus we were told to quickly enter the theater like room.  Once we entered the room a movie started to play, it was about President J F Kennedy.  The movie depicted how Russia was leading the space race, by lunching Sputnik and placing the first man in space.  To that president Kennedy responded with formation of NASA, the movies further described the Apollo missions and how some failed very badly when the rockets exploded.  Once the Apollo mission was successful President Kennedy decided the US will be the 1st country to reach the moon.  The movie ended with that remark.  As all the public moved to the next area, we realized that that were in the Apollo 11 control room where history was made, another movie started playing which described how the Apollo lifted and the problems it faced in space and how the astronauts over came the problems, the movie produced superb sound effects. It was like a real time effect of Apollo 11.  Once the movie was over we exited to a display like area where NASA has placed the actual gigantic Apollo 11, so we took some pictures and got in the line for bus to go to next area.  The next area was dedicated to the International space station.  We saw another movie which described how the space things are made and how they were launched in the space station.  While all of us were looking at the different things Mrugesh wanted to see the clean room.  Geet and Audi being tired sat on the bench and rested while Diptesh and MP went on to see the clean room.  This area had the largest clean room that DIPTESH had ever seen.  The last place that we visited at NASA was the space shuttle simulator, which AUDI was extremely excited to see.  While we all were going towards the simulator Geet and Audi were looking at the space shuttle located next to the simulator.  When we walked down the ramp we looked at different things written over head on the ramp.  We checked another movie while we were standing in line.  Whole movie was about different astronauts sharing the experience of the space shuttle ride.  We went inside and were shown another movie…it was freaking cold inside.  After another movie we went inside another room where they asked us to stand on red dots drawn on the floor.   While we all were taking place on the dots…Geet spots a hot Spanish chick standing behind him showing her cleavage and adjusting her bra.  Unable to take his eye off her Geet’s attention was taken off when Diptesh asked him something.  When Geet asked Diptesh weather he checked the chick out he said dude I already did from top to bottom.  Smiling at each other they went inside the simulator room.  Everyone sat in the seats and had their seatbelts on.  Once seated inside the simulation started.  I won’t describe this whole experience as we believe everyone should take this experience for sure.  overall simulator ride exhibited the a space shuttle lunch into space.  After the ride we went out and it started raining we went running in the gift shop.  After that we lost each other Geet and Audi went to the visitors center and waited for Diptesh.  While seated for 30mins Geet and Audi checked out all the girls that passed through there.  After a while Diptesh came and offered us a cookie.  The cookie was an amazing creation of NASA.  It was an icecream which was warm and dehydrated that could be taken in to space.   After having the icecream and taking a ride the park was about to close. We went to car and decided to eat something good after looking at lot of options we ended up going to a local Chinese restaurant.  As soon as we entered we started checking out the chick that was taking our order.  She looked good.  We ordered our food and waited at the table for it to be served.  After having the food we sat in the car and Diptesh started driving the car.  Mean while we were talking to Karan and some bad news arrived he told us he might come to Miami tomorrow morning as his flight has been delayed.  We were driving on our way to Miami and he calls us again that he is going to board the flight and will be there at 11.30pm.  Diptesh realizing the time started speeding a little so that we can reach on time to airport.  Everyone was tired by that time and were waiting to get to the hotel.  Mean while the gas in the car was about to be over so we pulled over to a exit to fill up on gas.  Diptesh and Audi went inside to get something to drink.  Audi came back in form as he got some sleep on the way. And now we were about to enter Miami FL. ( Go to Miami Section) to continue
