Travel Tales

I am currently reading Gerald Durrell's " My family and other animals" It is hilarious in style and Gerald's family is so endearing and entertaining. I am at just the beginning of his travels to Corfu, Greece.

Was in Bangalore yesterday and enjoyed the rain that poured down as we were headed back to the airport. Travelled Jet after a long time and ate lunch at a darshini called Swati at 4 pm!!


In Chennai, Anush had gone to my grand aunt's farm and was very excited at having picked a zillion mangoes!! It did look like a mango market at home when I got back. since my mom did not take any pics, here is one from the past at the farm . . . and one at home with the loot

On Sunday we had been to a shaadi in an area called Valsarvakkam which I have never been to in the last 10 yrs in Chennai! I felt very hi-tech navigating teh route using googlemap on the cell phone.

Anush went up to the bride and told her " Aunty you are looking pretty"

She saw a girl in high heels and exclaimed" Amma , is she short or is she silly? " ( something her positively silly but not short mother had told her to keep her off heels) Luckily that girl did not hear this.
