Hello from London!

It's been a while people.

So much to share. So much to catch up on.

First things first, what I've been upto.

Cambridge was fantastic. This one year studying at one of the oldest Universities in the world was a privilege, and I leave with memories and friendships that will last me a lifetime. I know that many of those will fill these (web)pages in the times to come.

Before I finished my program, I did a short stint in South Africa working with a not-for-profit organization that helps kids orphaned by Aids. It was an enlightening experience, in many ways even for someone who comes from India and has seen varying levels of poverty and struggle.

Then, I geared up to say a last G'bye. Three weeks in New York, my old home. I hit a few of my favorite spots, met my favorite people and then packed my boxes and said my official Goodbye's to the land I call one of my few homes. NY, you are special, and will always be home in many ways.

Now, I live in London. I can say so coz as of Friday, I really do have my own spot to live in. The lease, all signed and delivered. I'll be in West London and am quite excited to start a new life on this side of the world.

I'm not thrilled to be dealing with drizzly rain and gloomy skies, a two-floor walk up (not done this before), and multiple tube changes to get to a particular spot.

I am thrilled about doing up my cosy flat, exploring London, trying out new places, meeting new people, and spending time over many glasses of wine as I chatter away with people around me.

It's a new chapter.
