March 23, Belle & Sebastian was amazing. Yes, they performed the song Portland, Oregon, and yes, I squealed like a schoolgirl.

Rainy Bombay

On my way back home, we almost couldn't land. There was a terrible lightning storm and more rain than Mumbai had seen in a long time.

It was like Portland was reaching out to me through weather.

I am finally home, glad to be home. But I will miss you.

I will miss your colors.

I will miss your history.

I will miss your energy and your need to keep moving.

Most of all, I will miss your celebration of all things beautiful,

and the way you smiled at me.
