2 weeks...from today...

it’s finally done. i got my it nary planned and i shall have my tickets in my hand in 2 days time, and from there on, if everything just goes on according to plan (ok...even if everything just goes on as usual and nothing new and unexpected happens) i shall be flying over the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean in 2 weeks time on my way to the island.
Mauritius here i come!! :)

well, now that i am certain that i am actually going, the very thought of being back on the island seems to have sent my entire thought process into a spin...till date i fail to understand how in the world i managed to survive for 3 years on that island?? i was so eager to leave and i am quite enjoying my time out here in India...but still, i miss my 'second home' so much. somewhere along the course of 3 years, amidst all the fun times and shitty times & through the upheavals in my life, in between Ramgoolam's election as the PM and the walks along the beach with my dad, somewhere somehow the island managed to sneak into my heart. you know how it is!

anyways, i am sure going to be reliving the good ol' memories of yonder days and raise a toast to them!! Buddha Beach Bar at Flic n Flac, Kenzi, Tamarin Falls, Mont Choisy, Reduit, QB, Saxo, Grand Bay, PL, Steers...and all that!!

...and of course PHOENIX follows me everywhere i go...

*update: well i just had to do this. Gordon's gift to me, and now my gift to you all. enjoy!!*

Hi Nachi,

ohh ohh ohh how I miss that little island.
But I miss you even more. Can't you come to Canada, just for a little while? After all, it was once your home too!

Sorry I've been off the blogging circut for a while. I'm going to go write one right now!!!

Nachi, it sounds as if you GO HOME...

Though I've never been In Mauritius I completely understand you:
Since I've seen Timo's photos 2 years ago I am longing for being there.
And once I will be there, I am sure!!!!!

Hey Bru,

Good to hear that you are still alive....I believe the island will be a treat, even if it is only for a couple of days.

Take the time out and just enjoy the BEER. I believe it will still be as good as it was back then..

Cheers to that!

Yeah, i wish i could join you over there... Phoenix, Dholl Puris and of course the sun sounds like a great deal to me. *sigh* You're right probably not a good place to live but once you've been there for a while it puts you under a spell.

I'm also in for the reunion. Let's do this in a couple of years. Hell that would be awesome!
