Patrick now in seventh heaven with new van and new job - driving exclusively for us. It’s shocking how happy he is to go off and get more and more extras fitted to the van. He asked for a 10CD changer - didn’t get it though. He doesn’t actually have any CDs to begin with. ;-)
For the first time since Mysore I genuinely loved the food once again. It was such a pleasure to chow down on their excellent cuisine. 3 roti, a rice (excessive), Paneer Bhujia (shredded paneer, served with capsicum, beans and chilli - quite hot and like Aloo Bhujia) and Dum Aloo Kashmiri - wonderful sweet dumpling in slightly tikka sauce. Nuts, pineapple, raisins - somehow it works.
