Yes, eight years is a very long time. That's how long it's been since I last visited India. And that's where I am headed right now, with a few days layover in Zurich.
I'm looking forward to hugging family I haven't seen in years, saying hello to new babies, catching up with friends and meeting Anita for the very first time! I have already sent her a long list of what I want her to cook for me. It might not be enough and I might have left some things out. So if you think you have some cool suggestions, feel free to include them in your comments because she reads my blog, you know!
My post about celebrating my friend's pregnancy is still in my Drafts. Preparing for this trip to India took over and there were far too many loose ends to attend to. I decided not to fret over it and will finish it when we get back in 2011.
My awesome friend Jen Yu fought hard against her dislike of Blogger and agreed to do a guest post for me while I'm traveling. That's coming up next week! Until then, wish me safe travels! Stay in touch with me via Flickr or Posterous.
