On a Blue Moon Night...

It's the end of a very disappointing year.
I was dyyying for 2009 to end, even though it actually went by at break-neck speed.

We're finally on the last day of the year and as I look back, I'm trying to think of some of the positive things that happened in the year (I don't need to think of the negative, they were so devastating that it need not be put down here to be remembered for posterity).

April 2009- Delhi

Met with AB for the first time, and met K and Zombie again.
This was the best of my trips for the year, in spite of all the travelling I did after.
I miss Delhi.

July 2009 - Nasik

Stayed at The Beyond at Sula , which was awesome! The wine was fabulous and the food they cooked for us was orgasmic! We gained a lottttt of weight in 3 days, all 8 of us! :o)

August 2009 -Cairo

This was excellent. I was there on business, and so I didn't have to spend a dime on myself (except for those earrings I bought at the souq, but that was a steal!)

also August 2009- Kerala

Went there mainly for a friend's wedding. My bday was on the same day as the mehndi function and it was the worst bdays to date! Hardly anyone wished me (this one woman called me, talked to me randomly, hung up, then called back again 5 mins later cos her husband reminded her it was my bday and she wished me as a afterthought), and I kept being shifted from one house to another due to various reasons, feeling completely unwanted and like a huge nuisance. Wanted to get away ASAP.
Not the best of months for me.

Nov-Dec 2009 - Spain

Bittersweet. The place was beautiful. I would have enjoyed more if I was in a better frame of mind.

Nov-Dec 2009 - Uk

LOVED the UK! There was this one day that I spent in London by myself, walking around with my nose buried in my Lonely Planet, taking train after train from one place to another. It was fabulous! I'm quite an expert now at taking the Tube :D.
Oh, and this one night, we were right outside as Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson and Penelope Cruz were walking out from the premiere of Nine at Leicester Sq! And the next day, I took off to Cambridge, and my cousin took me to Ely Cathedral at (duh!) Ely, and Colin Firth was shooting for a movie there! :D

The funny part was, everyone in the Uk was super nice! I've heard so much about how stiff and cold the British are and how there is a lot of racism there, but thankfully, I didn't experience anything! A lot of times I would be the only Indian in a very english pub, and though they'd give me the once over (I guess it's not often you see a single Indian girl in a pub ordering bangers and mash) they were mostly nice and would become chatty, or else just leave me to myself. I was delighted with England, and England seemed quite delighted with me! :o)

Anyway... my vacations are all over for the year. And hopefully, the suckiness will be over too.

I hope that 2010 will be saner.
I hope that I can forget and forgive. And forget. Oh how I wish I forget!

I wish, I hope, I pray....

my own Guy Fawkes poem

Remember remember, the 22nd of November.
Disbelief, tears and a lot of anger.

You will heal, you're loads better already
These things take time, just go slow and steady.

Remember remember, the 22nd of November.
You're ok! Next time, just choose better! ;)

Imponente Formentor!

I'm back from my 2 week vacation to Spain and the UK and it was fabulous! I actually got back last thursday, but it's taken me almost a week to get over the whole jet-lag thing! Which is weird, cos I didn't suffer from jet-lag when I was there! (either that, or I was too drunk to tell! :P)
I've got hundreds of pics of course, but lemme ease you in!

The ones above were taken at a place called Formentor in Mallorca (Spain).
I have never seen so much of the ocean ever! Esp from such a height! We went right to the top of that cliff, and the view of the ocean from there is just so breathtakingly beautiful. And so humbling! You realize how small you are in the bigger scheme of things.

When we went back and met with some locals, they said that everyday, at least 1 person jumped off the cliff there! Every day! Mannn!
But I gotta say, it's pretty easy to jump from there than say, to hang from a noose or something!
It's so beautiful that you'd feel like you're just joining in with the waves and becoming one with them (which you probably would, eventually, after being smashed to smithereens by the rocks!)
But you know... it would be like the whole ashes to ashes thing. I think it'd be a pretty good way to die actually!

Ok, enough talking about death.
I'll be back with more pics later.
Adios chicos!
