We went to 2 wonderful (and relatively loud) places this weekend, and my son managed to take a nap at both of them.

I'm not bragging-- he's usually not a great napper, and it's only in the last few months that he's really gotten the hang of going to sleep all night and waking up at a relatively decent 6:30 am. (And even if he wakes up earlier, we've trained him (sort of) to stay in bed until his clock turns green (I thought I wrote about it here, but can't find the post-- I'll have to write about it, as it is a gadget that's really done the trick.)

Diwali and Untapped: Remarkable places to sleep.
The first place we went to was a Diwali feast. Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights, and this was the first celebration that we attended. It was at the house of social media expert and pundit sree sreenivasan and his lovely wife Roopah (sree lives the lowercase, but I'm not sure that Roopah is) Sree is a colleague of my wife in the social media "space" -- ooh, jargon!
Their apartment was beautiful, with a great view of the Hudson. There were also about a million people there. We got there around 12 noon, and in the car AA had fallen asleep. A little bit earlier than his usual nap-- 1:30-2, but hey it happens. We wheeled him up to the 28th floor in the elevator, took off our shoes, and brought him into the party.
