The World would be a perfect place if we live in the same town with our friends and family ......................

I cherish every friend’s visit in Vienna and I love showing them around my adopted country, food, culture and lifestyle…Last week I had very ‘rare’(very old friends, esp. Melody as we go back 20 years together - in a place, called at that time, St. Paul's High School)  visitors from my hometown, Mizoram and they left yesterday..back to their respective adopted countries…. Suddenly, the apartment and Vienna seems to be very empty……


Lucy arrived on Wednesday from Oslo and Melody on Friday from Amsterdam - We spent few days together, chatting till the birds were chirping in the morning, woke up at mid day, had breakfast at 12pm, lunch at 5pm, and dinner at 12am….More than sightseeing(though we did see a bit), we spent  time cooking Mizo food (one can find most of the ingredients in Vienna), catching up with each others lives, reading Mizo jokes from Thinchhia’s  Blog….. Their visit completely threw me out of my routine, but I loved every moment of it and wish that it could last a little bit longer….

But life is so, and I must accept that one place is too small for all of us to be together…but would'nt the world be a perfect place if we all live in one town..............??


 PS: I learnt that Anhling is found in Europe and Lucy made sure that I recognise the plant...Yipeeeee.....it grows wild in Austria.....

True. But it almost never works that way. Does it? :(

Just about found this site and it took me back to memory lanes. How the times have flown. 20 years!!! We were wild and free and had not a thing to care about. But now, alas! We're so far apart now! But I still have those memories that I cherish. If only we'd live in one town... yeah, that would be great and I'd have the pain of your kicking my shin back again. This bittersweet feeling of warm emptiness is so strange but it still feels better than emptiness. Do come back soon. Rory
