Back in Bombay!

Mike & Aliya on the mumbai local

I had a wonderful time traveling with my brother Mike and Aliya. Took them to the airport on the night of the 6th : (

Goa, Kerela, Tamil Nadu and Mumbai times were fun - they got to meet some of my lovely friends, we had 'unforgettable' bus rides, sleepy train rides and lots of beach time. Now back in the big bustling bombay - last couple of months with my friends and trying to figure out what I am going to do I will start the intense job hunt and finish my application for UC Denver PhD program.

Lots of the unknown at the moment....I am sure it will all work out, seems to do that in life!

Halwa,a yummy gummy textured sweet. Calicut or Khozikode is a well known area for making this deliciousness. I sampled several and bought coconut and pista.
