Another trip to the UK, this time with conspirators from the Global Portal Team. Enjoy – I did 🙂
Off to the UK
Would you believe this is the “Premier” line? I feel so unpremier!
Let’s kick off with some movies. Bahut accha hai!
Apparently, Gabbar is Back.
I have no seat mates. Yay!
Time to fly!
Scenes of taking off from Dulles.
Requisite dance scene in Indian movie.
Top of the morning! Early morning, landing at London Heathrow.
Wake up time!
Hey… who’s that dashing flower in the distance?
it’s HECTORIOUS MAXIMUS!
My parking skills still suck.
And these weird looking Americans keep following me…
I learn that Porridge and Oatmeal are the same thing.
Home, at least for two weeks.
Hector LOVES the food at Marekesh!
View from my room.
View down the alley in front of hotel. England alleys have cool stuff to discover.
Secure door, with convenient access to security code.
How many miles from Delhi? Why, 4550!
Hector and Sean enjoying the tasty pre-meal treats at 4550.
This pub looks interesting.
Oh man…. home cooked Indian!
Tim’s house, food by Hussain and Rabi. Romba Nallathu!
Including my shoes
The Number of the Feast!
Worst Pizza Ever.
Our dining theme was, essentially, Indian food.
My end of week/weekend theme was essentially “get better”.
In my country, Maryland is for Crabs1
Tim, sneakin’ down the alley…
…to a tasty vegetarian/vegan place hidden therein.
Alley at night.
Going to pick up a new arrival.
Where o’ where is he?
We found ‘im!
Guess what – we’re eating Indian!
This is the Thriveni.
This is the Param!
Dosa, Kalla Kunga!
This is where Hector and Sean would be if they woulda showed up. More dosa for us!
Yes – all four shots are for me.
Five Guys, from the USA.
Thank you, Param’s Grandmother, for the hat 🙂
awaiting Dosa and Athu Paratha.
It is what it says.
Curry Lounge. I lounged and had curry.
Derby, UK. Tim takes me to a vegan cafe.
Which feels more like a bedroom in someone’s attic. The food was great.
U of Derby.
Hi tech thinkin’

It’s an original 😉
Lets see, should I get a dosa? (Ammam!)
Crackerjack team of portaleers at UoN. Hector, Sean, Staci and Param.
My room, which feels like a bedroom in someone’s attic, but not as cozy as a vegan cafe.
It’s no Escalade (which is good because I kept running out of space)
Brit’s have a good sense of humor.
Time to head home.
Ah, peanut butter toast. Gawd Bless America.
I want a slider-thing like the forthcoming UoN design!
Movie, in Hindi? Sure!
Name that movie?
I so wish I got this upgrade on the longer flight.
And so ends another UK adventure. According to this Caffe Nero card, it seems I simply must go back. At least for my eight more espresso and the free tenth 🙂 Cheers!!!!
