The arc of my life last week…

… Took me from roadside “cha” in earthen “bhnar” to Starbucks coffee in paper glass. 7 cents for 1 ounce to 3 dollars for 12 ounces!!!
Nothing says I am back in the US like that first sip of Starbucks coffee. When the lady asked for my name, I asked her to write “Cha” in remembrance of all the tea I had in India πŸ™‚ And she did!!! I am sure she thought I looked suspiciously unChinese for such a name!! πŸ™‚
One more flight segment and then I am home!!!
