yesterday evening...

What is the BEST thing to end a busy working day with? For me, nothing more than a ride in the rain. Now rains are almost back to their cozy little place, and they don’t visit b'lore often. But yesterday while I was on the way back, it began to drizzle slightly. As soon as I took my turn from the highway, I stopped my bike, removed my jacket, gloves and helmet and just roamed around - getting wet in the light drizzle - and to keep me company, Pearl kept on playing some of my favorite tracks.

Nothing beats getting wet in a rain - if you are riding, the better :-) and, did i tell you about the smell? The smell of earth after rain - this is one smell which can drive me crazy (the other one is the smell of colocasia flower after rains). It is now getting colder here, and I love when it is cold.
During November - December, it is too much fun to have a steaming hot glass of strong filter coffee early in the morning, from the tea stall - the early morning chill and hot coffee goes exceptionally well together.
