October 18th - Home and Away - Worlds and Worlds apart

Today it was cloudy and when the first - and only - drop of rain hit my face, I swear that i felt a whiff of the smell of mangoes and wished for just a moment, but with an intense urgency, that I was in Kolkata, soaking in the monsoon and devouring the sour-sweet mangoes that leave an orange trail on your chin.

Then I walked on and lost myself in thoughts of work.

Later I read this superb interview of Gael Garcia Bernal - a man who exhudes belonging and an amazing sense of proximity to his roots. I love his description of Spain the the difference between rich and poor countries.
