A friend from Atlanta

This weekend, a friend is visiting from Atlanta, along with his wife and 4-year-old daughter. I am very much looking forward to spending a couple days together with them.

Our story goes back to a couple of accidental meetings.  The first meeting was about12 years ago — we met on a bus which was taking tourists to Universal Studios! We chatted and then parted. As it happens so often, there was no further contact. The second meeting was at Mumbai airport 3 years later – we happened to be on the same flight to Chennai. After that, we decided that the Mysterious Force does want us to stay in touch!

As we age, it becomes harder for us to make friends. Luckily, this is one relationship which has been an exception.
