Yes.  I brought my entire collection of Stephen King and Nero Wolfe books to India.  Yes.  It cost a fortune and more than the books all together were worth.  No.  I do not care.  Yes.  I am making my husband ship them all back.  😛


Lots and Lots of Salsa and Chips and Pepperidge Farm Cookies! © Gori Rajkumari


No.  I did not share with my husband.  Yes.  He did sneak chips when I wasn’t looking.  No.  He’s still alive.  For the moment….


And CHOCOLATE and COFFEE!!! © Gori Rajkumari


Yes.  The Chocolate IS the reason why the Husband is still alive.  😉


And Lots of trips to Chili's which I hated in the US and now can't get enough of! © Gori Rajkumari


Yes.  They have the Oldtimer Burger there.  No.  It’s made from Lentils, Potato and Other various mashed veggies.


Do NOT forget the Mosquito Bat! Hours of fun to be had! © Gori Rajkumari


Yes.  That IS a dead mosquito you see in the top right hand corner of the racket.  Yes.  I did enjoy killing him.  VERY MUCH.


36" TV? OK. Cricket? YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG! 😛 © Gori Rajkumari


Yes.  The Husband still needs training.  No.  He does not realize that American Football and Baseball are the only acceptable forms of sports entertainment to be watched over long periods of time that do not extend beyond 3 hours.  Yes.  Cricket extends WAY beyond 3 hours.  No.  You may not ‘do him in’.  😛
