Later we return

Tomorrow we set off for our trip back to New Zealand. Our travels have been fun. I met new people, and saw family after two years. Every two years, one couple from our family come to Auckland, or we go to India. In Ranchi, I found it funny seeing almost everyone know each other. Teghoria, a place in Kolkata even smaller, I saw the biggest TV speaker ever.

Kolkata, home of the egg roll, and functions galore. It has been great experiencing the wonders of Durga Pujo, as well as other things. St. Xavier’s, BITM, and Hanglaatherium are only some of the great things I encountered along the way. I met over three sets of grandparents, that’s something. We saw the giant-housed world, another great thing. My grandfather and grandmother’s functions were another thing I attended. Funny voice recording names, pizza-flavored cakes, and more. Once again, I say, Durga Pujo was fun, but sometimes, you just have to return home.
