Salaam Alaykum people of the world!
Tomorrow, bi ithnillah I’m off to India for a 40 day long tropical, green, ultra-familial vacation, Alhumdulillah! So today, I sit here and anticipate the airplane rides (!), the frantic-time-pressed-Mumbai-shopping-spree, the sleepy taxi rides back to the hotel, the 17 hour long (or so my sister claims) bus ride to our native town and finally all the shy awkward Salaams to cousin sisters and aunts, you last saw two years ago, before you unleash all your pranks on them and vice versa. Alright, I admit we’re not much of a prankster sort of people, so strike that off. Then you have comments on how different you look, how brown or otherwise you’ve become, how tall you’ve grown. On second thoughts, I mustn’t depend on that last one. And there are all the little ones you need to be introduced to. Such adventures =) Alhumdulillah!
