Looking forward to Leonid Meteor shower on 17th

Only 2 days to go but the sky is still not clear here at Hyderabad.Moreover ambient light of Hi-tech city always hinders sky watching.
I am hoping clouds will be cleared and we will be able to see.Its a new moon  on 17th of November 2009 which will add to the
darkness of the sky.

The annual Leonid meteor shower is expected to peak about 3 a.m. Tuesday morning.The Leonids, associated with the comet
Temple-Tuttle, produce bright streaks of light as the earth passes through and burns celestial dust ejected by the comet.

I am trying to find a place nearby which is relatively dark and away from high buildings.
