During our honeymoon in India, we were on our way to Darjeeling, but the second leg of our flight was cancelled, leaving us stranded in middle of nowhere (Guwati, in assam, to be precise).
We headed off to the train station, a dirty affair with naked kids and dogs and mud floors.
A wonderful, jolly indian couple from Mumbai approached us on the train station, and insisted on taking us out for dinner (to 2 different resturants) while we were waiting for our train!
They also invited us to their home in Mumbai, where we were served an enormous, delicious meal consisting of several curries, roti, rice, sambals, chutneys and more.
They wiggled their heads and told us “Good food make happy thoughts!” – and this has become a philosophy for us. Eat well, and be happy 🙂
