Actually, wanted to let everyone know what I've been up to of late. Started taking Hindi classes. Hindi coming along slowly but surely. The sounds are somewhat similar to Espanol and I find myself wanting to speak in Spanish oddly enough... I think because India reminds me of Peru in many ways. I also started taking classical singing classes. Quite fun actually. And want to take up the tabla drums soon, too. I am going to a Buddhist retreat tomorrow for ten days! Quiet and meditation and lectures on things... Buddha. Ohm and the like; enlightenment and all that... or at least inner peace and mental focus. Don't worry, Nori tells me it's not a course for converting people into monks or anything like that. So it may be awhile before another update.
Today is a big celebration for Diwali again. This time its the angels and Gods celebrating... just another excuse to blast fireworks really... just kidding... Nori tells me there won't be many fireworks but lots of lights. Last year my birthday coincided with Guy Fawkes day in New Zealand and this year it's coinciding with another day of celebration. I feel special.
