It’s been months since I have written. So what kept me busy? Well, this and that. It was time to leave India and visit Europe. I was there for 2 weeks, visiting places. This should have ensured more travel posts. But I returned the US on a pair of crutches with injured ligaments. Now that was due to a minor accident on the streets of Italy (an incident my friends like to make fun of saying “Sicily mein phisli”, meaning, “Slipped in Sicily”). It took me a while to get rid of the ultra-glamorous red crutches, and by the time I had recovered, it was time to shift coasts. I was starting graduate school. Unpacking, packing, repacking, and getting rid of the rest of the clutter took me forever. I am in graduate school now, which also means I have less time and even less money, meaning I travel less. Too bad. So till I make future trips, I’ll try to clear some of the backlogs.
I realize even amidst my hectic schedule, attending classes, writing proposals, starting to get into the regimen of doing homework when I thought I was long past the age of doing homework, I miss my life in Seattle. It seems like a chapter from another life, all fuzzy and full of nostalgia. I still check the weather of Seattle every morning, more out of habit than anything else. I know I will get over it, but till then, here are some nostalgic pictures in and around Seattle. These have mostly been taken from airplanes or elevated heights.
Mount Rainier, a volcanic mountain and the highest point in the state of Washington.
Hope you folks like the pictures.
