London and Barcelona images.
This was the church I admired in the dying light of a cool London evening, just after saying goodbye to Husainsaab in his hospital room. It will always have a special memory since I sent up a prayer for him at that moment. A prayer that went sadly unanswered.
I had just left the LCC ( London College of Communication), where my daughter is seeking admission. This was the spectacular view from the large window in the airy office of one of the Directors... you can spot the London Eye in the far distance.... just beyond the storm clouds that were fast gathering.
Beautiful Barcelona looks stunning from any angle. This narrow street leads up to the famous Picasso Museum, where we spent several enchanted hours. I particularly enjoyed Picasso's tribute to El Greco. And yes, just as we left the gates, we witnessed a knife fight in this very street!
And that's the W Hotel, seen from the cable car. I was hot and bothered and not in the mood to take pictures ( an hour long wait for a measly 10 minute ride), but the W looked pretty interesting from this height. Reminded me of the Burj Al Arab in Dubai.
Guys.... just say the word.... I have more where these came from, okay???
Mubarak ho! Bollywood's Bahurani is in the family way! Great news. A rather puzzled foreigner asked me sweetly, " Is it traditional in Indian society for a father-in-law and not the husband to make such an announcement? Is it a part of the customs of a patriarchal society ?" I really didn't have the answer. But if any of you guys do.... enlighten the rest, please!
