Wonderful evening with the Whitneys!!

That was some fun times spent with my crazy friend Roger and his family. I had not seen Shauna, Spencer and Emma for quite some time. It was great to meet Claire too!

We talked about the time when I gained respect from the passenger sitting next to me when he realized I knew Roger personally. And of course our trip to Mongolia. And that time we kept razzing a very young Spencer with “Whatever dude! You kissed a girl!!”

But my best reflection of the evening is that the discussions between my psoriasis and Emma’s tattoos, I think we covered all topics skin related 🙂

Hope we can get the two families together for a vacation some day!!

What new skills can I develop? You have a suggestion for me?

Had a great evening session with the three Mukherjees – Amitesh, Samaresh and Anindya. One of the topics we veered into was – “what new skills are you trying to learn?”.

There is a fantastic article in The Guardian on this topic of why, as adults, we should keep pushing ourselves to learn new things. If you ever get a chance, read it. And hopefully you will get inspired to start something new.

Samaresh is learning a new language – Spanish. He wants to visit Spain and talk to the locals in their language!

Here is a question for you all… what might be a new skill I should try learning? Knowing me, quirkier the idea, the more I will be attracted to it!

Anything you have tried and enjoyed learning?

Coffee with some old friends

Erin, Katie and Micalah left Roam virtually at the same time in Feb. This is where I used to go to work on the days I was not traveling. We caught up after a month over some coffee. It was a great day to sit outside.

Some of the things we agreed to do in future included riding motorbikes, running a half marathon and jumping from a plane!!!

Caught up with Rakesh after quite some time…

It used to be that we used to motorbike at least a couple of time every month. Then winter came in, his family got hit by Covid and we simply did not get a chance to see each other. From a different message he found out that I was at Mazzy’s and surprised me by showing up. Before wee knew it, we had spent three hours together!!
