Friends, food, fun, sun and sand- a San Francisco saga

When I landed in Singapore with a 2 months old baby Ajey, I had no idea how I would raise a kid in a foreign country without any support and help. Mr. Husband was there for less than 10 months and had many bachelor colleagues. It was a group of around 13-14 people working together. When I look back I just marvel at the fact how difficult it could have been but we all made the best of it. 5 days of working together and then on weekends we had  outings as a group. Ajey as a baby had so many people to take care of him.

We cherished our time and then everybody moved on eventually.

Some of those friendship have stayed with us for over 25 years or so now.  One of those family is moving back to India. Hence the San Francisco visit.

I could write about the details of the trip but the friendship part is more prominent in my mind. The love and care we received tops everything I could ask for. The details and attention, the food list and prep and planning everything exuded their love for us.

Those few days were just full of warmth. And yes my love affair with sunrise and sunset continued even in SFO. Their bay facing apartment was a perfect place to begin the day and they made sure I got to see many sunsets too.

What do you cherish in your friendship? What is most important for you?

A saree I got as a gift from them last time I saw them. She really caught me in my element. Grateful and happy.
