And why am I telling all these things?

E por que eu estou escrevendo tudo isso?

Because we were lucky to be invited by Shanthi - our "bestest" Keralite friend to a traditional lunch. It was amazing!!! The food was delicious, and served on banana leafs, with no cutelery , like a real Keralati! It was a wonderful experience!

Thank you Shanthi!

Por que esse ano nos tivemos a sorte de sermos convidados pela nossa grande amiga Shanthi, que e de Kerala, para um tipico almoco de ano novo. Tudo foi maravilhoso!! A comida estava otima e foi servida em folhas de bananeira, sem garfos e facas, no puro estilo Keralati. Foi uma experiencia maravilhosa!

Obrigada Shanthi!

    ӏ mean, ӏ don't want to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean "VISHU - KERALA'ѕ ΝEW YEAR/ ANО
    NOVO EM KЕRALA ( Ιndia)" is a little boring. You should glance at Yahoo's front page and see how they create news titles to get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.
