Random Musings

This blog has been totally neglected for the last 3 months. I blame.... eBay I think. But I am now a reformed, ex-eBay addict and have time for other stuff like updating my blog (just one personal blog now, have decided to let the other one die a natural death, but also need to get round to pulling my weight on the vintage blog), reading a bunch of books that I've been faithfully borrowing from the library and getting my impacted wisdom tooth operated on and removed.

So what have these photos got to do with anything? I am not quite sure except that they are colourful, have interesting street scenes and I enjoyed walking around Chennai by myself where I took them.

I don't think I'll be going to India this year due to work budget constraints. If that is so, then it will be the first in 3 years that I don't make at least 1 trip to India. It will be a record of sorts for me as I sat back one day a few months ago and thought to myself, "Now which country have I travelled to the most in my 20 year career?" (yes - 20 years!) and the answer was "India". Not exactly what I was hoping for, but that's the truth. And in the wake of the Delhi bus gang rape, I wasn't that happy with the realisation.

But this year, there won't be that much work-related travel. We are hopeful that we are getting our acts together earlier in the year, and plan our personal travel better and get to where we say we want to. Without the hassle of work travel, travelling might become more fun and I may in fact, want to travel while I am on leave, rather than opting to sit on my couch at home which was what was my preference the last 2 years when I was getting on a plane every other week.

 All right, random musing over. Blog re-activated.
