Dylan’s Cafe happened after I left Shillong.
And the last few times I’ve been back, I had not had the chance.
so this time around, we made it.
It is supposed to be a tribute to our favorite Nobel laureate
since the city already celebrates his birthday every year on May 24th.

During low tide, you can walk on foot to the tori 🙂
Last night I made Maggi for dinner.
I thought I’d cook something interesting
but realised I don’t really know how
to whip up something nice and tasty;
or is it that I really don’t make that effort?
or that I just don’t enjoy cooking?
But when I travel,
I automatically become the foodie
I enjoy all kinds of food.
From the airplane food,
to the take-out-tiffin from
the local family mart
and all that you get in-between.
i don’t think i’ve posted anything
on mawphlang sacred grove
despite my many visits
to this picturesque place.
this visit was spontaneous
but with good people
and lasting memories…
we get lucky
and find ourselves
by the banks
of old rivers
and sandy ground
waiting for us
to spend the
the week starts…
So, I drop a postcard to my parents,
telling them I’ve left home for good
and that I can be found in a village
a village by the sea
if they ever need me
