Can I Have Your Attention Please?

For the first time since the invention of hard luggage, I've been entrusted with the Task of Packing The Bags. I feel like I am solving a Sudoku, a crossword and playing the highest level of Tetris, all at the same time.

I am India-bound after a long time ("don't know if I am goin' or leavin' home") and will be hitting the pothole-covered road for the next 3 weeks. So updates here will be slower than Rohmer's films (Harry Moseby said it, not me. I *love* Eric Rohmer's films. "Six Moral Tales" is a work of genius. And could an American director have made "Claire's Knee"? I think not. But that may or may not be the point of this post.)

So, until the next time.

serious packing tip courtesy of my mother - when placing them in suitcase roll folded clothes - you can fit more.

let me know if that actually works. i always use the 'dump whatever you find 10 minutes before you leave for the airport' technique.

your wife must really have faith. :)

if you're sailing past the western waters (to avoid the potholes), get in touch!

TR: and where's the "buri nazar wale, tera muh kala"?

bm: I see we are all using the same methodology here: dump, drive, fly.

K: I was going to email you once I landed in Bombay. Will exchange numbers/addresses then.

Have fun km! :)

And yes - roll thicker clothes instead of folding them. Am going to be in India for three weeks in December. Can hardly contain my suitcase!

Enjoy the trip. And don't fret the packing - TSA will repack it all anyway (They always do for me)

Packing to go home, i feel can be a sudoku when the anxiety to travel back home is overpowering. In that sense, potholes i assure you will be the least of your concerns.

Welcome back. :)
