The first rains...and a monsoon vacation

The intoxicating smell of the first rain....aaah... could not have asked for a better holiday package. Kerala and Goa are the best holiday destinations for the monsoon. Accompanied by our monsoon wedding - this was one of the best vacations I have ever had. 

Monsoon Blog 1 Colorful umbrellas all over the house ( considering the fact that there are 4 naughty brats), wet cloths that never seem to dry looking rich and colorful, the lush greenery that greets you, the reflections of the coconut trees in the paddy fields, 'chakka vevichathau' ( a yummy jackfruit dish) and hot hot chaai whever you go, the delightful smile on my little niece's face as she experienced her very first monsooon in God's Own Country ....
If this is pleasure - I hope it rains every day.
