  1. So nice to read this. I wish I spoke more languages, and I am jealous because I have always wanted to learn German. Such a good positive person, I am glad to have crossed your path. I could go on and debate some of your points but another time. Thanks for brightening up the day!!

    • Thank you, Pravin.
      Definitely! One of my dreams is to see Taj Mahal. However, I would like to explore both the touristee and non-touristee sights of India – so that involves a lot of planning. Unfortunately, it will take some years before that dream comes true.
