Lakshmi and I met for lunch in Jaynagar 4th block and she went with my choice of having Chinese (Indian Chinese food rules). We went to a place called Chung Wah in the Jayanagar 3rd block. The place was recommended to Lakshmi by her friends. The food was really good but I promise I will do a separate post.
I was telling Lakshmi that I am not really as talkative in the real life as I may seem on the blog. But I have seen this time and again that when you meet someone after reading their blogs for a long time, it is easy to talk to them. I got to hear a lot about her job and travels and time just went too quickly.
Then I had a little bit of fun. A lot of people were waiting where the first bus dropped me. They all boarded the next bus, so I too boarded it. When I asked the conductor for a ticket he said the bus would not go there and I should get down at the next stop. The next stop looked quite familiar, so I decided to walk to the place where I am staying. Just to confirm, I asked an elderly person about the housing complex and he affirmed that I could walk straight ahead.
And the two pictures that you see in this post have been taken while I was walking back. I am quite glad that I managed the bus journey without any hiccups as I can’t speak a word of
The PC is now talking to the mobile phone because I using the back USB ports, earlier I tried the front USB ports and I did not know they don’t work!
Before I wrap this post, let me mention that there are a lot of lady bus conductors which I have just not seen in the North India. And many of them speak English and give useful directions to helpless souls like me..
It was quite a wonderful day.
