Attending a Big Fat Indian Wedding

We got invited to a wedding.  But not any wedding, a wedding to top all weddings.  The son of my husband’s business advisor was marrying the daughter of one of the top silk merchants in the south.  The groom, from the north; the bride, a South Indian.  This meant a blend of two different Indian…

Birthday Party – Mumbai Style

This last trip to Mumbai was quite close to my son’s milestone 5th birthday. We thought it would be fun to celebrate with the family.  My brother-in-law loved the idea and went all out.

A Quick Visit to Salt Lake City

Since we flew in and out of Salt Lake City for our summer Wyoming/Yellowstone adventure, we decided to take a few hours the day we were returning home to check out the city itself.  Salt Lake City is both the capital of Utah and the most populated city in the state.  Founded by Bringham-Young, the…

Why Delta Needs to Empower Its Agents

I admit, I booked my flight in haste.  Under normal circumstances, I’d never book a 36 minute connection.  But I was greiving, flying to a funeral, and I needed to get home and back, so I didn’t pay close attention to the flight details. Once in New Jersey,  I called Delta concerned about the short…
