She knit the coolest mufflers and overcoats, told me the most descriptive and engaging stories, sang songs from old rhymes to English pop' with me, could switch from telugu to french in a wink and cooked the most amazing mutton curry, rasam and rice. I miss you so much Naanu. But I know you're in good company and the furry boy is around to protect you.
We all love you.
And you? You would have loved to meet her.

Me at theSaint-Germain l'Auxerrois
Sometimes, some dreams, do come true. I remember sitting with my history project on the Renaissance while growing up, and wondering to myself if such places did, in reality, exist. I had seen pictures, which were not only breath-taking, but unfamilar and alien. I promised myself, that some day, far into the future, I would save up and find out.
This summer, I had the immense satisfaction of striking one wish off of my bucket list.
(The Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois has a very dark history with respect to the 1572 massacre, google it or find a book!)
