The Newest Punekars*

January 1, 2013

Alex, Morgan and Kim

Here are Alex, Morgan and Kim, outside our flat with Westin Hotel and Koregaon Park in the background.  After Christmas in the US, we all arrived in India early morning of New Year’s Eve.  We all were pretty tired and slept well last night – New Year’s fireworks not withstanding – but the jet-lag is still there and will take a few days to get over.

This week will be mostly for the girls to get their bearings; there’s some tourist spots we have on tap to visit.  And Morgan needs to start thinking about school; Jan. 7 she will start at the Indus School of Pune.  Indus has international schools in Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad; going there Morgan will have a chance to meet and study with kids from 22 countries.  I’m sure my daughter’s experiences there will give me – and her! – a lot to write about in the coming months.

All in all, it’s good to be back.  The US time was a nice rest, but all of us were impatient to get on with things and get over to India.  And I’m happy to have my bachelor life here come to an end – homemade roti (of which Kim made some last night) beats microwaved paratha any day.


* For US folks, “Punekar” is the Marathi language term for “someone from Pune”, just as Mumbaikar is someone from Mumbai.
