My Kingdom for a Watermelon Martini

Right now, my kingdom for a watermelon martini, the beach, butter garlic calamari and those bright yellow Goa french fries. Or perhaps for the peace of contemplating silence, maad (palm feni), and a plate of baked crabs. The mere idea of sitting in the Goan sun, writing, pulling and pushing, and then may be finally smiling... Dear God, so much more than my kingdom.

I'll be back in a week.

@Anon: How I wish but I'm still in muggy Bombay. The week is for being swamped at work.

Who be though?

You've taken to posting only after each trip! Chalo atleast that prompts you to publish something ;)

You do realise that the reader / photo admirer is waiting rather (im)patiently?
