Awesomest of times…

So I was home for the weekend and it was bliss, that is a great place to unwind. The light clean comforting air with all the smells of summer floating in it was heavenly. I miss that clean home air, here it’s just foul and contaminated and going back there and getting a whole lungful of that air was intoxicating. I liked the way the rays of the sun danced on the plants and created images below…. even that was beautiful. No, I am not high… it just felt good to be back.I have fallen for Mowgli (alias Zimbo). When I saw pictures of him, I thought he was the most ugliest looking puppy. I met him on Friday and he is so funny… he has this silky hair, you can’t get over how soft and smooth it is. Then he has these antennae like ears, they are always perked up like rabbit ears… he jumps on you when you ask him what maaaaaa…” In short, he is cutishly ugly.
Manju (the goat at home) is also fine, and she is pregnant. Sunoj (a cousin) was playing with her so I said “Careful Sunoj, she is pregnant." To which Sunoj replied “I didn’t do anything, I am not responsible for that”.And the cousins had come home, so it was extra fun… we had beef puffs, ragda patties & Tequila…

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…

Padua and Venice 2015

So the last travel post was about Turin, after which we drove all the way to Padua and after roaming around at night, eating ice cream  we came back to Tulip Inn, our hotel in Padua. After the complimentary breakfast, we set out to visit San Antonio's shrine, the shrine where the tomb of St. Antony is located. We celebrated mass in an adjoining chapel there,  We weren't allowed to take pictures in the main shrine, but I surreptitiously managed to take this one. After walking around and praying in this huge church, we then went to the shrine shop. Among all the places we visited, the stuff I've seen at the Padua shrine shop, is really good. One of the best places to shop for souvenirs, everything is so pretty and well made. I had visited Padua in 2013 with Antonio and Nameeta, and Antonio picked up a really cool looking black ring with the Our Father inscribed on it in Latin...
He rarely wears it, so I started wearing it...
Picked up this cream and chapstick at the Padua …
