Today is Ugadi, Telugu New Year. It is also celebrated in Karnataka and Maharashtra as well. We were meant to be at C’s hometown this past weekend to celebrate with his family. But, the day before we were meant to leave C fell ill. We cancelled as there was no way he was going to be able to drive 8 hours in the searing heat, being as tired and sick as he was. So we have spent the last three days in this hot , dry city. And it seems to be getting hotter by the day. We sat on the sofa, in front of the cooler, wearing as little clothing as possible, and watching movie after movie. Finally, today, we had a nice meal out to celebrate Ugadi, we wore new clothes and had a delicious South Indian breakfast. We then wandered around the cool mall and spotted this:
Now as we are back on the sofa, in front of the cooler and trying to battle the Hyderabad heat, I pray this summer lets up soon and hope you all had a Happy Ugadi.
