Two undying passions...

Had the Saturday off, FINALLY!!!!! It's been long since I was able to sleep well into the day. Wanted to wake up late on Saturday, but Sr. Ancy rang up at 7:30 am and after that I couldn't go back to sleep. The things I go through for having sisters and fathers as friends... ;-)
Anyway, it was nothing important so I got to spend the day with some of the best things in life, books and ice cream. There was a lot of cocoa powder at home so I made a chocolate sauce, wanted to eat hot chocolate fudge, and it came out pretty good. That book 'Tis by Frank McCourt is amazing. I loved the first part to that book "Angela's Ashes".
Have to go to school now, there's a medical checkup for the children.

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 …
