So after the evening mass on Sunday, we decided to go out for dinner and that's how we ended up at Eatalica. And boy, I'm so glad we did... the food was really really good, both in quantity and quality, and it was quite easy on the pocket too. But the most striking feature of this place is its menu card, it cracked me up. Every time we (me, my sister and Tonio) wanted to order something we would start laughing... all the items on the menu were modified names of Hollywood celebrities. Sample this...

This chicken steak burger is called Tommy Lee Bones.

This chicken sizzler is called Henzel Washington.

This beef sizzler is called Kurt Cowbain.

These deep fried prawns are called Pierce Prawnson.

The garlic bread we ordered was called Bred Astaire, the chocolate milk shake we had was called Calista Chochart. It was all so hilarious... here are a few other names on the menu: Smiley Cyrus, Trihanna, Beyonce Knowles (brownie with hot chocolate sauce), Jodie Froster ice cream, Chillary Swank, Lawrence Fishburne (Good old fish & chips), Juice Willis (a juicy beef steak), Clint Eatwood, Clarke Gobble (veg steak), Monica Chewinsky, Heath Wedger (potato wedges), Ethan Hawke (spicy chicken wings), Gill Bates (fish fingers), Stew Barrymore, Francis Ford Cupolla, Keanu Leaves (salad), Hamfree Bogart, Jennifer Showpez, Cheese Witherspoon, Puff Daddy, Tex Harrison, Kevin Bacon (bacon cheese burger), Tiger Would (a burger with all the works!!!), Must-in Timberlake, Ate Winslet...
Needless to say we will keep going back, the place is rather small... but the food is great. The decor is ordinary (pic above), the place is clean and the service is good. We ordered about eight items on the menu and the price came to about Rs. 1300. All in all, a pretty nice place to hang out and have some good fulfilling food.

On to some great news, I've been featured on a wonderful friend's blog... I haven't met Beth in person, we got to know each other through our blogs, then we connected on Facebook and she is a gorgeous person, inside and outside. Her faith makes her beautiful, she finds beauty in almost anything... and that's why her blogs are pure delight. She is incredibly talented, I love her paintings and the beautiful creatures she brings to life in them. Thank you Beth, for this honour... I am delighted!

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 …
