I thought of all the Indian food you've had me try over the years. Of course, I don't know the name of virtually anything because you'd laugh and say you didn't know the English word for it. Still, I enjoyed everything, even if it was, as you cautioned, spicy.
Stingy and not particularly hungry, I opted out of food and got Falooda instead--very sweet!
I thought of you when I saw Sana's and Zoe's henna tattoos. These similar, intricate designs have graced your hands in the past and I always admired them. I almost got my own but the line was an unbearable wait.
Bottom line, I wish you could've been here. Sometimes I forget how effortless it is to talk to you and feel at ease. I felt like I was pulling teeth just to relate on basic levels today. Maybe I'm just done pretending I want to be here. This summer has been more work and hardship than relaxation and fun.
I can't wait to see you and give you the biggest hug.
All my love,
