Designing Woman

I saw this really old movie today, Designing Woman and it took me back to those good old days when I had TCM. It was nice seeing this simple neat and decent, fun movie. Gregory Peck looks good as usual.
Actually watching a movie after a long long time... the last movie I saw was Superman Returns and I hated it... there was nothing, no story, no plot... just a Brandon Routh flying around and saving that really irritating Louis. What really pissed me off even more was her irritaing son with his freaking inhaler, who is actually superman's kid... how truly amazing!!! And Lex Luthor is not worth mentioning. The Lex Luthor on Smallville is so much better... and cuter too.
Saw Brokeback Mountain before that... was thoroughly disgusted... stupid stupid movie!!! Two cowboys are left all alone on the mountains and suddenly they become gay... and people actually liked that movie, it won the oscar's for somethin...

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

A Corpse in the Ground

Avila and Fatima

The next day after an early breakfast we set out to visit Avila, which is about an hour's drive from Madrid.
A video of the landscape in Spain... Here, we've just reached Avila... these Walls of Avila were completed between the 11th and 14th centuries and they are the city's defining image. We had a lovely guide, Maria, and she took us around this quaint city explaining about the fortress and the cathedrals.
Another video depicting the welcoming sounds of Avila... the constantly chirping birds over the walled city of Avila are quite captivating, they seem to beckon you in. Avila's charm...  The sun, spilling her beams... 
The church of St. Teresa of Avila Inside the church, mass was just getting over... The chapel dedicated to St. Teresa
The main square in Avila
So after checking out the church of St. Teresa and the museum where her finger is displayed, we started on our way to Fatima in Portugal which is about a five hour drive from Avila.

Stopped on the way to have a …
