Chennai, me and home!

It has been a couple of days here in Chennai, away from home. I still feel like I am on vacation and I will be home soon. As days pass by, I realise that soon isn't soon enough.

13 things I miss about home ( In no particular order)

1. Waking up at noon - Seriously

2. Waking up at noon to the smell of awesome home cooked food - Need I say more?

3. My oven - My cookies, my cakes....

4. My pesky little brother - Can't live with him, can't live without him.

5. My friends - Randomly meeting up within 5 minutes of feeling bored.

6. Ability to travel anywhere at any time - Nothing against Chennai but I will take some getting used to the roads and modes of transport.

7. Talking to the halwadar in Marathi and getting away with parking "for 2 mins" in the no parking zone.

8. Oh all the women in the train who taught me some awesome Marathi and Hindi cuss words - I promise to come back and teach you some tamil cuss words.

9. My grandparents, my dad - sigh

10. The extendable curfew at home - At the hostel, it is 7pm.

11. My bathroom - Trust me, it feels different

12. TV !!!!!

13. The feeling that I belong.....

I was in Chennai two summers ago and I wish I could go back, but I understand your feeling about wanting to go home. :)
