Actually, not really. While all my friends seem to have migrated off to Europe and the Americas, we are still around in Bangalore flailing around in the heat and power cuts, and poor water supply.
Snubnose has been admirably patient for so long, but last week when her closest friend’s family decamped to Paris and Dubai, she put her foot down and said we need to go somewhere, and to be honest, I feel the same.
Of course, as usual we have planned nothing in advance and so my mother’s house in Chennai is where we will go. It’s been ages since we visited. Considering the temperatures, some may say that we are jumping from frying pan to fire and they would be right. I am counting on the fairly regular power situation and the air-conditioner to get through the heat.
So I am busy finishing off last-minute stuff, packing, and general running around and we’re headed off for a week of fun and relaxation with the family.
I”ll be away from the blog all of next week. The posts that I have scheduled for next week will publish, but I”ll be away from active blogging and commenting.
