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.

Jobless and lovin' it

I left my job on January 31st. Was sad to say bye to the people I've been working with for the last year. I detested the bit where you send out that goodbye email and then actually go around saying bye.

Secondly, been bummed out the last few days as I was careless enough to leave my beautiful camera under my seat last Monday when I left the flamenco concert at the Al Felaij Castle Theater in Barka (talk about despistada). I tried recovering it and allowed myself to become a little hopeful when the organisers called to tell me on Thursday that a camera was found at the concert location. Did three trips out to Barka since then and finally got to see that camera today, and as it turns out, it was someone else's video camera. Anyway, my dad couldn't see me as miserable as I looked and got me the same one :-) You can bet I will be guarding this one with my life!!!

Apart from the above pathetic incident, three days into my jobless state, here I am, excited about my trip. Leave tomorrow night for South East Asia to travel for a bit and clean out my head. Between work, Paraddax being here, and my paperwork for Spain, not to mention other undisclosable yet mentally strainful events, I really really need a break!


  1. Hey, this blog is cool. I've been wanting to make my own for a long time. So, I question, where are your pictures? I want to be able to post pictures.
    Do you pay anything?

    You write so much that I didn't read it all. I like your nature picture though.

  2. Hey Corrie,
    You can host pictures through blogger, however I've got mine up on flickr. Just scroll down a bit and you'll see them under Paraddax in Oman Part II. Its free!

  3. Hi Nam,
    Best of Luck for your new life, starting with SE-Asia tour...

    I will definitely remember 2 things - (a) you never got time to come to my house. If I had to formally invite you, then I am sorry I don't know how to be that formal with frndz.. :)) (b) You had been planning a get-together at your home which never happened.... All-in-all, myself and wife Ruchi would have loved to chat with you. But no worries Nam...
