Back to Blogging
Hello all! I'm back after a two month hiatus, during which I wondered (amongst other things) how and when to resume my bloggerly ways. And then, eureka - I found it! LudaKrishna and Vikram MC - the sweetest thing to hit the stage since mango chutney! I'm glad its attracted some bloggers (including the notorious HFP).
I've moved to the US and have been trying to adjust to the move ever since. In some ways, its great to be here - after all, I am living in the city they call the Paris of the USA. It really is a gorgeous city - quaint, colorful houses, undulating streets which make for sudden spectacular views of the bay...and it has the best second-hand bookshop I've ever been to. By the time I leave here, I'll have an enviable book collection...
The people here are easy on the eye too. Most of them look like they've stepped out of some glossy magazine. Seriously, if you walk down Fillmore (one of the swankier neighborhoods in town), you'll start to wonder how on earth anyone came up with the notion that Americans have weight problems. At practically any time of the day, you'll come across at least three people jogging up or down a street. It doesn't sound like much, but think about it - its pretty weird.
What I love about this city is that the streets sparkle. Not all the streets - just the sidewalks downtown. They're mixed with these little glittery chips that reflect the light and so they look all sparkly and twinkly. What a simple way to beautify concrete.
What do I not like about being here? Well...I'll spare you for today and talk about that some other time. For now, I'll walk down a glittering path to the glittering bay.
