I finished my breakfast and then thought of checking emails. I looked cursorily through few important messages. My cousin had started blowing his car horn signaling that it was the time to move "Beep... Beeeep. ...". I signed out of my gmail account and rushed towards the car. He took his car out of the gear and soon, it was coasting down the road. It was once again a nice sunny day in Colorado.
The first interesting place that we visited was the IBM company in Boulder. It was indeed a state-of-the-art facility nestled at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Then we went on to visit a beautiful lake located nearby the IBM premises.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) developed by the United States Department of Defense. It can be used freely, and is often used by civilians for navigation purposes. It uses a constellation of between 24 and 32 medium Earth orbit satellites that transmit precise radio-wave signals, which allow GPS receivers to determine their current location, the time, and their velocity.

It was almost 9 PM when we finally called off the trip! We got into the car. In a big city and with no more natural lights around, I was just wondering if my cousin could find the correct route back to Fredrick. But thank god! He had the GPS (Global Positioning System) installed in his car. One can never get lost anymore, and have to stop and ask; "How can I get to ...?" With the GPS you will never have tough time anymore while going to a completely new place. Like other developed countries, in Japan the use of navigation system is quite common and now, it's been introduced also to some major cities of India. Lets hope that some day, we will be able to use it in Nepal! But for that to happen, first our leaders need some sort of GPS in order to run the country smoothly. Well, there's always a tomorrow!
