Much needed

Well.... after a long break from writing this thing... I have decided to put finger to key again. For the first time in 5 years the 4 of us went on holiday together somewhere far off and by a beach.Thailand to be precise. Bloody marvelous!! We met lovely people and did the things we like doing best. Roochi learnt all about planting rice with Natasha and actually went out and did it. She also weaved baskets. Nikhil and I went fishing AND caught something. Lots of water and swimming involved. All of us went out snorkelling which has to be one of the things I like to do the most on holiday. Of course last but not least ..... eating. Oh the food. I also ate spiders and dung beetles that were foraged for by Nikhil and Natasha and some local vilaagers in the a village that we stayed in for a few days and then the lady of the house cooked it up for me to eat. The Spider was actually not bad. The legs tasted of roast pork and the body tasted of mild chicken liver !! The dung beetles I could have done without. If you don't believe me....... here is a photo ;)

I was not kidding :)) !!
Peace and Love
