Skipping stones over the English Channel. .
.
.
Dear P, Technically speaking you could swim across to France from this side of the English Channel. Considering I possess no such talents, I sat there drenching myself in the waves, sipping on coke on the rocks 😄and wolfing some greasy English chips. I did try skipping stones, but only 1 in 10 actually skipped. Massive fail but oh what fun! .
.
Love, I

Dear P Swipe for truckloads of food including fluffy little fried breads 🥘. To escape heat, I planned a weekend getaway to London’s air conditioned art galleries and restaurants 😄( no no beaches, they re freaking hot as well). We were in Darjeeling Express for lunch and what I loved apart from their scrumptious food is their work environment. .
After the lunch service, the chefs and other waiting staff didn’t go in some deserted backlanes for relaxing after the shift, they came out in the restaurant area and stretched out their legs with large cups of teas and coffees in their hands. I liked that approach and appreciate the work culture @thedarjeeljngexpress. The all too snobbish restaurants should learn from it. .
.
Love, I

{Postcard from Windsor}
Dear P, We were in the land that went a little crazy a while ago to celebrate the new royal couple’s wedding. Well you can still find the traces of madness when you alight at Windsor station. There’s a big billboard of Meghan and Harry , and innumerable trinkets sold as souvenirs with their pictures here.
.
The second picture in the series is the place I called you from. The Eton college is privileged boarding school for boys in England. This is where you go for a tour to see how the 1% lives in United Kingdom. They weren’t open to public and I was quite okay with it. I have mixed feelings about such places; can’t say I couldn’t care less because I do. At the same time I don’t care much about their privilege either. We are all privileged in our own ways.
.
PS: I over explained the whole privilege thing, didn’t I? Guess that place did affect me subliminally. 🙈
.
.
Too proud to admit, I

{Postcard from Munich}
Dear P, Absolutely not. I m not following World Cup even when I see all my colleagues glued to their phone screens and cheering in short bursts every now and then; even when I was in Munich when the Germans were playing (and losing) their first match against Mexico and a zesty fan came up to me and prodded if I was Mexican 😀; and even if it’s absolutely impossible to evade the contagious madness around World Cup in general. I did end up calling a friend last evening and almost agreed to watching the English game against Colombia. Just escaped by a whisker. Let’s see how long can I hold this stand 😂😄👻. I ll keep you updated. .
.
You my friend have given in to peer pressure as always. Beer, beedi (smoke) and a World Cup far far away from your land! Hehe, you give in too easily P. Whereas I did a silent protest by hogging a delicious crepe at @tramcafe in one of the bylanes of Munich even when I could hear the cheers , gasps and humdrum of football fans in nearby beer gardens, parks and basically every street corner. .
.
Strongest girl ever, I 👻

Dear P, It’s her abandon and sheer delirium that was making me envious yesterday in Seven sisters.
.
In continuation to the last post:

Dear P, Yesterday, egged on by a friend, I crossed a stream of Cuckmere river barefooted( it was hardly any distance). Walking on those pebbles was so painful that I could kill someone in that moment. And there she was, lost in delirium, high on sunshine and alcohol, this girl who was having quite a time jumping around that same stream. .
I wish I had her endurance or if I could gulp down some drinks and loose that sense of pain. Well none of it seems to be going true in this life.
.
From a bright and sunny day in #sevensisters and #brighton, I returned with a spring in my step. What a fun day it was, will share more pics from the day.
.
Love, I

Dear P, Brush up on your Bombay slang, while chomping down on Vada Pao, Samosas, Poha with a cup of happiness ( masala chai) here at Bombayrotti. .
PS: If you are used to my rants about chai( tea ), well this isn’t the best tea but at least they don’t burn a hole in your pocket. This tea comes with either a pack of Parle G biscuits ( the Indian equivalent of malted biscuits ) or a samosa/ vada pao. 😍

Masala chai fanatic, I

{Postcard from Ljubljana}
I walked 20 minutes away from the prim and proper city centre of Ljubljana to reach the heart of alternative culture, Metelkova Mesto. This was an ex military barracks taken over by squatters in the early 90s. It’s usually compared to the free town of Christiana in Copenhagen. This one has more graffiti than that I reckon. .
I went there when the lull of afternoon had taken over this place. I’m told this is to be experienced at its best past 11 pm in the night when the art, culture and the pub scene comes alive. Well, I would need someone as wayward as you to be able to enjoy an anarchist place of sorts. When are you coming by ? 🤔I m too uncool to be going around here on my own 😄😌
.
Discreetly passed by, I
