“The air is full of spices!”

Last week was the sad passing of Alan Rickman.  I’ve loved him since he whispered the iconic lines about India in the film adaptation of Jane Austen’s (who I love even more) Sense and Sensibility.

On that note, last Friday a conversation between an Indian coworker of mine  went something like this:

Me:  Hey I heard you are getting married! Congratulations!

Him:  Thanks!  You should come to the wedding in Bombay in April?

Me: Seriously??  I suppose I could…Ben has spring break and we were planning on going to Korea but we could go the other direction?

Him: Yes, totally.

Me: Really?

Him: Yes, I’m totally serious.

Me: Ok, why not?

So six days later, Emirates tickets purchased (because that airlines is on the bucket list) for a fast 1 week in and out of Mumbai with an extended lay over in Dubai so Ben can to to the top of the Burj Khalifa.

India…here we come.
