Our Wonderful, Adventurous, Magical, Re-union Vacation

Mata, Ponappa, Poo and I are going to Italy for a re-union vacation. If I survive June, I will probably go. Mata has already lost it twice, called the rest of us "adolescents". Mata and Poo, being vegetarian, have started piling on Ashirwad meals, Bhujia and papads. Ponappa has as usual made no plans, because "darlings! I don't have a continental shift like you 3 desis, y'know!" Ponappa is also looking forward to meeting up hot Italian ladies, Poo is excited at seeing Venice with Ponappa who ironically, wants to go to Athens.

Mata has chalked up a long list of architecturally interesting places and has started reading up Italian history and art. Mata is trying in vain to pull me completely over to her side. Poo and I have made plans of idling away at cafes sipping lattes and eating gelatos. Mata is already driving me wild by looking suspiciously at every italian looking dish in gourmet and asking me, "Are you sure it does not even have egg!" (This was asked when I was looking at grilled eggplants!)

Poo has asked her uncle to get her pepper spray. Mata and I want to bring back prints, Poo has already said twice, "See, don't bore me with Van Gogh's life ok?" Ponappa for the most is quiet about everything. Poo and Mata have already started asking me suspiciously,"Are you sure you're coming?" even though MY visa is in order and my tickets are almost done and both of them have to go for their visa interviews next week.

Some things never change and I can't wait to do Paris with them next year.
