Mi Bodeguita del Medio

While my blog is named after a restaurant in Havana I hope to someday visit, here you will find musings, rants, political incorrectness, thoughts on Indian Nationalism, strong straight-forward opinions and tid-bits.

Almost back home

Its my last day in South East Asia, and I'm sitting off of Khao San road in Bangkok, been doing the last bit of shopping and even had to buy a new suitcase because all the stuff I've accumulated over the month cannot fit into my backpack anymore. My plane leaves tomorrow morning at 9:45am, and once I am back, I will most likely be running around doing all sorts of organising: closing off at my old work place, paperwork at the spanish embassy, sending off boxes to Barcelona, international drivng licence, medical test, etc etc etc. Back to reality!

In my mind right now there are various images floating around: buddhist monuments, rivers, boats, buses, faces of the people I met, conversations I had with them, cities I walked through, animals I caressed, fish I saw underwater......I will go back a richer person, richer because being alone the past few weeks has taught me to believe in myself, because I have taken risks that I didnt think I would or could take. I have also come out being in love with Indo-China, a beautiful region with its simple, yet beautiful people. I hope to sit down in a few days and be able to write down in detail my most memorable experiences from the past month.


  1. cant wait to hear all about it! :)

  2. Hi Sweetie!
    How are ya? I just read your blog. It's Feb 28, 2007 (1:11 a.m. EST). You must be in the plane right now...on your way back home. I admire your courage for traveling alone. And, I'm little jealous that you got to see so many beautiful places. :)

    I hope you write more, so I can read more about what's going on in your life. Maybe one of these days, I'll actually start my own blog. Who am I kidding!?!?! I'm too lazy, and my life is truly not that exciting.

    I miss you very much. I hope to talk to you soon. Love ya, Nehal

  3. Hey Nehal, I've just gotten home, and I'm in a bit of a daze, finding it difficult to adjust to real life. I keep getting the feeling that I should be waking up in a guesthouse somewhere. Anyway, will update this space once I can be a bit more functional again. Miss you too, and think I will see you this year in August!
