Read the title carefully, it is not what you think it is. The main event for me in the London conference was losing my veganity (vegetarianity) of 30 years. The cocktail party was going on with waiters moving around with short eats. I spied a plate of cheese rolls with pink and yelloow stuffings. Must be strawberry or something like that I thought. But the pink one didn't taste like strwaberry. So I tried the orange one, that too tasted a little sour. And then I found out that I had eaten ham (pink) and salmon (yellow). Well, what to do? Just washed it down with Champagne.
In other events, visited a foreign country (Scotland) for the first time. I have been to Dubai and Singapore, but those are places where there are some foreign nationalities amongst Indians. London was no better. Only on landing in Glasgow did I feel like being in a foreign country. The architecture and the country side of Scotland are just beyond belief. And people say that Edinburgh is far more prettier than Glasgow. In case I rustle up enough money, will definitely go on a holiday to Scotland.
Landed up in London and reached my destinations without much hassles, thanks to the directions given by Chakra. Talked to him over phone and had planned to meet with him and Dubukku on wednesday, but from wednesday his phone is going to voice mail. So couldn't meet him. Chakra will definitely meet you the next time you are here. Dubukku, I had brought Brothers Karamazov (Dostyoyevsky's novel) for discussion. Sadly, we have to do it some other time.
Had Coffee with the Queen and had a free wheeling discussion on many things.
That is the half way report. Am leaving to Leeds shortly and from there to Dubai. Service will continue from Dubai.
