Back to base!!!

I’m back home at Ahmedabad after what I would call a ‘bittersweet vacation’. And it sure feels good. πŸ™‚

Of the 2 weeks I spent in Chennai, the first one was spent fully in roaming the city, while the second was spent in complete relaxation. For the most part, I was at home the second week, with time spent in talking, relaxing and reading. The memories worth mentioning from this period include:

~ An evening spent shopping at T. Nagar. Yes, I shopped there, had fun, and came out alive and breathing. πŸ™‚ I bought reprint versions of Jhumpa Lahiri’s ‘Unaccustomed earth’ and PG Wodehouse’s ‘Aunts aren’t gentlemen’.

~ Falling in love with ‘Black Forest’ icecream at Saravana Bhavan. I could only say ‘Wow!’ as the sinfully chocolate-ey thing melted in my mouth.

~ A beautiful evening spent at Marina Beach, when the waves were extraordinarily huge and forceful. The feeling of standing in the water was wonderful.

~ An informal meeting with blogger Sathej, my first-ever sort-of bloggers’ meet. It was a nice experience. Unfortunately, could not meet any other Chennai bloggers. 😦

~ Vetti talks

~ Fun time spent with kiddos, an enlightening experience. πŸ™‚

Like all trips do, this trip too has changed me in little ways. I’m back with memories, new realisations, a few extra kilos, an extra coating of melanin on my skin, a lot of books I am waiting to read, and already dreading the Monday round the corner. 😦
