Tis the season to be jolly

30 Day Writing Challenge

We work with a parallel team in the US and so on Friday, instead of working, we ushered in a company outing out of the city – which was fantastic because who doesn’t love lakes and trees and hills to climb? I went out in full spirit and did everything, got looked at like I’m a weirdo because instead of sipping cocktails with my fellow lady colleagues (which I did), I first wanted to play sport and climb the hill up to look at the view. This resulted in a sprained right thumb (OW! OW! OW!) which prevented me from posting this yesterday but I’ll make up for it by posting more photos than I originally intended.

Hope you’re having a good thanksgiving weekend and haven’t been too trampled in the Black Friday madness. For those who aren’t American? What have you been doing this weekend?

Apparently winter is a great season to be in love

  1. Nice story and photos. Ok, what I’ve done this Weekend. The sunday starts now, it’s 9:40. Yesterday I had to install a new dishwasher in the kitchen, today is advent pastry and we’re visiting perhaps an Christmas market. So a dream job Sunday…


  2. Sprained thumb, huh??? Surely not from climbing the hills!! πŸ™‚ Or did you play cricket, and tried legspin like Anil Kumble? πŸ˜‰ I had a hectic but fun weekend too…went to a place called Chinatown for some awesome Chinese breakfast early in the morning! πŸ™‚


      1. My sympathies… πŸ™‚ Calcutta is the only Indian city to have its own Chinatown! And, there everyday at crack of dawn, some of the chinese sell amazing chinese food on the street…usually its dim-sums( dumplings), meatballs, Bao and momos….winter is ideal time to visit..
