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!!
… I am not exactly a night owl. But then again, with great company like that of these two, even I can stay up past midnight in the bar!
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?
Best part of the evening was 4-year old Chiku. He could spell tough, long words – mostly dinosaur related – better than I could!!
Met Shantanu and Mrinmoyee after nearly 4 years!! A lot to catch up on! Also tried Hobnob upstairs in Halcyon. A very nice environment…
This is where we used to live – way back in 1994!!
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!!!
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!!
It was great to spend some time with Matt and Hunt – starting our second round of working together…
