Simple ritual

I ordered a chai on Lucie and my first walk of the day.

The guy put sugar in the glass, carefully pouring onto it, hot milk. Then hot water in a steel ‘glass’

How’s that my chai?

He promptly threw the milk onto the ground followed by the water and thankfully just about missing Lucie.

I’m guessing it’s a first thing in the morning ritual. I can find out no more, at this stage, given my sophisticated knowledge (don’t ask) of the local Kannada language and the hotel owners grunts.

I did get my chai.

Another connection with the caribbean. In their case before you take a sip of your rum give a little to the ground.

It’s now back home to finish preparing breakfast for todays lovely guests Eli and James from England

  1. Thank you Steve for always celebrating Manjula and her presence in your life.
    Thank you for the opportunity to be a miniscule part of the celebration.
    Faizan , it’s only you who could juxtapose the emotions that we all went through that day.
    Beautiful. Good luck and warm wishes to Manjula and Steve .

    • Thank you M for helping it be a great success. I think Faizan captured it really well especially the joy on the young women’s reactions. I’m certain Manjula loved it. Stephen
