I’m back in Bangalore after a relatively long break of almost 15days!! I had gone to Jabalpur (A town in central India where I grew up) to visit my parents and attend a friend’s wedding. The wedding went great, I got a chance to wear a couple of my own wedding sarees (which I had never worn before and I have been married for almost 2 years now!!).
My mum recently retired from her job as a college professor (she is a professor of Zoology). Her career spans 39 years (phew!) and she has no intention of stopping now, she will take up another job next month. So she is between jobs right now, which was great for me as I got to spend some quality time with her. Earlier whenever I visited home she was at work half the time.This is me with my Dad after my friend’s weddingThis is me with my mum(not great pictures cause they were taken with a cell phone at night)
Well I don’t have any pictures with my friend at her wedding, I guess will have to ask her for those.
After her wedding I traveled to Jordan to join my husband who had gone there for work. This was one of my best holidays ever! Jordan is a really beautiful country.....we visited loads of places there......I don’t have the patience to write about them and I’m sure you’ll find better descriptions elsewhere.
We took loads of pictures too.......here are 2 of those.This is me looking tiny and insignificant beside the gigantic roman pillars of the temple of Artemis in Jerash (Jerash is known for the ruins of the Greco-Roman city of Gerasa, and the site is acknowledged to be one of the best preserved Roman provincial towns in the world.).This is me and Aridaman (my husband) standing in front of the grand south gate entrance to Jerash.This is the famous Blue Mosque of Amman (I’m the tiny spec in front)
I also managed to do some craft shopping there. I was roaming in the streets of downtown Amman and I chanced upon shops crammed till the ceiling with craft stuff, well most of the stuff was made in China, but what the hell!!I got these small plaster of paris teddy bears and laby bugs, and also some cute white picket fence.I got these from another shop; these are painted wood alphabets and some wooden clips with bright colored flowers on them.
I did manage to some crafting over the weekend. Will post pictures soon!
Have a great week!!
