Despite hating Atlanta's sprawl and terrible traffic, I think the city is deeply growing on me. I had such a good time when I was there and feel like I have a fair sense of where things are and how to get around easily. Many people close to me live there too, so I'm pretty lucky that it's only a three-hour drive away.
I got to stay with Amit and Deepabhabhi and see them settled down as a newly married couple in Kennesaw. I can't believe my Motabhai is married and it was good staying with them and feeling the stability of marriage. We had a delicious braii on the deck Monday night. It felt like braiis we'd have back on our verandah in Z, with Motabhai taking care of the braii while we all sat around and chatted about random things. Deepa is one a million and we're so happy to have her in our family. Not to forget that she makes such good chai.
While on our way to Hot Wok Friday night, I discovered a fantastic radio station: 97.1 FM. They had all these mid90s R&B, Rap and Hip Hop songs playing. I hadn't heard "I got five on it," in ages maybe since Z. It got me so excited to hear them playing these great songs from back in the day; it was like the sign of a memory-filled weekend.
Hanging out with Nisha and Dharmisha was awesome as always. It's always so good to meet friends from Z. and do an array of things, I quite possibly couldn't do with others: dance, drink, party; talk, debate, advise; visit Rupa's beauty parlor, watch 'Kal Ho Naa Ho,' drink chai, drool over Shah Rukh Khan, look at furniture stores. I'm thankful to Nisha for always showing me a good time while I'm there. The Lava Lounge and Cosmopolitan rocked. I hadn't had as such a good couple of night in ages.
