Having an Ice Gola with Raoul Parekh in Bangalore.

Raoul's an old friend from Kodai School and we were in Phelps Dorm together for 6 years and now it's been 14 years since we saw each other. Fantastic to catch up on everything's that happened and reminisce about the good ol' days, such as getting caught for drinking and sneaking out to visit the girl's dorms Raoul's an interior designer and along with his wife and another partner, their current project is a 5 star hotel in downtown Bangalore.

After traveling through so many new cultures these past three years and meeting so many new people, it's heartening to rekindle an old friendship.

That ice gola is a North Indian street snack of flavored, shaved ice. I had it with Kala Kattha, which is a juice of the Jamun fruit with black rock salt, lemon juice and pepper. Mmm, mmm, good!
