roaming the world and enjoying the scenery...

Holidays in the hotlands

We’ve got all the stuff up and running – Christmas tree, lights, garland, mistletoe: the works. As I type this, “Deck the Halls” is blasting over the speakers (a big shout out to my new favorite web sites of the week: ernienotbert.blogspot.com, bigballsofholly.typepad.com, inkydog.blogspot.com, falalalala.com, and christmasyuleblog.blogspot.com. These are a bunch of sites where they take old records that are out of print, rip them to mp3, and then post them for download. Free music, people!!) and I am just enjoying the lights and the mood.

A funny little aside about how our life here is different than in a more temperate climate: we have one of those (East) German houses with the helicopter rotor that spins when you burn candles underneath. Well, in Mumbai, we don’t need no stinkin’ candles to make the thing turn. We can’t burn candles in the house, since we need to have the air conditioner on all the time. But as it turns out, the breeze blowing from the AC is just perfect to make the house spin around. Its the most wonderful time of the year!!

(We won’t let a little heat get in the way of our annual White Elephant party either!)
