my parents came on the 18th and left on the 28th : we had a very good time together and thank God, everything went smoothly as per my plan (including the climate-sun in paris and madrid!). we stayed in paris three nights and two days, covering the most important sights and activities. then to marseille, where my house was our base for the remaining days. and one night in madrid, sightseeing in marseille along with visits to my school and office (lunches there too). one day for nice, monaco and cannes including a short trip to ventimiglia in italy to have a cappuccino :) the last day in marseille was a lunch with my mentor before we left to paris to stay in the airport hotel and they took their flight to Kuwait the next day.
Now i am back to work, with a cold hehe but i am happy that my parents enjoyed the time and they are spending a week in Kuwait for a week before getting back home on the 4th after their first foreign trip!
i did not see any entries between my two posts - folks?? :)

First, my parents are visiting me in France for 10 days from tomorrow! I have taken these days off from work and needless to say, I am quite excited about it! I have made a plan to show them my life, work, friends, and a bit of France and Europe. It is also the first trip abroad for my parents, and what is interesting is that they will spend the 18-28 september in France, and then another week in Kuwait. This is because they got the cheapest tickets in Kuwait airways and there is a stop in Kuwait on the way back, where my cousin will host them. So, I was telling them that between India, Europe and the Middle East, they are going to see 3 completely different but equally interesting cultures in 17 days :)
Second, Happy Birthday Siddharth!!! I still remember how we celebrated your birthday in 2004 with a big party at your place :) So, here's wishing you all the good things in life this year and for all the years to come : may you be happy my friend!
Third, what do you think about my new look in the photo above?
It's been again a while of silence here in our blog, come on folks shake up things a bit! Following our past record, I guess Siddharth will start :)
