Shall I go and come again?


I'm off to Bangalore today and won't be back until January 8th.  In Kannada, the language spoken in Bangalore, you traditionally don't say goodbye.  You always say, "Shall I go and come again?" which is a small but wonderful detail.

So I shall come back in January and look forward to a wonderful year of reading!  And perhaps I'll finally work up the motivation to do my Best of 2012 post :-)

  8. Oh, have a wonderful trip! I hope all the airports treat you well so that the flying part isn't horrendous. (I hate airports.)
